Dengue Fever

There is rising concern about an increase in infections of dengue fever in several provinces, including Phnom Penh. Large-scale outbreaks of dengue fever occur in Cambodia about every five years. The last was in 2019 so there is a fear that this is the beginning of a build-up that will peak in 2024. Dengue is transmitted by the Aedes mosquito which is a daytime mosquito.
