Officials confirmed that since the start of the year 220 people in Phuket had been confirmed by local hospitals as contracting dengue, the same figure revealed in a report posted on the DDC website last Tuesday (April 10). (See report here.)
Two of those people died after contracting the disease, the official noted.
“One (of the victims) lived in Rassada and the other in Mai Khao, Thalang. Both of them were Thai,” she said.
“I think that one of them was 26 years old and the other was 14 years old,” the DDC officer added, though was unwilling or unable to disclose further details.
The DDC report posted last week accounted for dengue infections across the country from Jan 1 to April 10.
Worse for Phuket, the report also included figures for March 4-31, showing Phuket already is the leading province in the country for infections per capita last month, with Krabi second and Phang Nga third.
A different report by the MoPH’s the Bureau of Epidemiology, brought to light by Outbreak News Today (see here), corroborated the DDC’s findings, noting that Phuket’s infection rate from Jan 1 – April 9 stood at 57.52 infections per 100,000 population.
