Dengue Kills 40 in Dominican Republic
At least 40 people have died of dengue fever in the Dominican Republic located in the Caribbeans.

Even as the health authorities announced a drop in the number of dengue cases treated in hospitals, the total patients hit by the disease this year is nearly 4,700, out of which 166 are of the hemorrhagic variety, said Cuba's Prensa Latina news agency.

The Dominican Public Health Secretary Bautista Rojas said a large number of student volunteers will be enrolled to eliminate breeding grounds for Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes, the transmitter of the disease.

He urged people to take necessary preventive measures and also avoid contact with breeding areas.
