Dengue infections have been on the rise in Puerto Rico this year, despite the fact that the rainy season, during which the majority of cases are typically reported, has not yet begun. Since January 1st, there have been 549 recorded cases on the island, with approximately 62% of those infected requiring hospitalization.

Dr. Iris Cardona, the chief medical officer at Puerto Rico’s Department of Health, is concerned that if the numbers continue to rise, the health system on the island could be at risk of being overwhelmed. To combat the spread of the virus, authorities have conducted multiple spraying operations to reduce the number of mosquitoes in an effort to prevent further infections.

It is crucial for residents and visitors to take preventive measures to protect themselves from mosquito bites. Using insect repellent, wearing long-sleeved clothing and eliminating standing water where mosquitoes can breed can all help reduce the risk of infection. By working together to control the mosquito population and raise awareness about the importance of prevention, we can help stop the spread of dengue infections on our island.
