The spread of the epidemic seems to have slowed in Tainan, where 21,044 cases have been reported, but the outbreak in Kaohsiung remains at peak, said the statement.

The outbreak has been the worst in years though the island is hit by the disease frequently. A total of 24,860 patients have recovered, while 34 remained in intensive care units at hospitals.

Dengue is a mosquito-borne, potentially fatal disease that mainly affects people in tropical and subtropical regions, causing fever, nausea and muscle and joint aches.
