Dengue outbreak suspected in Nusa Dua area

Patients being treated for dengue in Nusa Dua area hospitals are reportedly up.

One such hospital in Jimbaran, RS UNUD has apparently seen the amount of patients spike up.

According to the Director General of Operations at the hospital, Dr. Made Ayu Haryanti, the hospital is at 90 percent capacity for DB (dengue) patients.

Looking back, the amount of DB cases this hospital has seen went up a whopping 70 percent from March 2015 to March 2016, Haryanti told Tribun Bali.

“Currently, in order to provide optimal service, we have added eight new rooms from just ten rooms before. Patients are basically dominated by DB and DHF (dengue hemorrhagic fever).”

Head of the Badung Regency Health Office, Dr. Gede Putra Suteja confirmed to Tribun separately that DB figures are sharply increasing but was apparently unable to offer the newspaper any exact figures.
