Dengue Information to be Presented at Guam Community College Multipurpose Auditorium Tonight at 6PM

The Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS), along with partner agencies, continue efforts to mitigate the spread of the dengue virus on Guam.

No new cases were confirmed in the last 24 hours. There remain nine confirmed cases of locally acquired dengue infection and sic confirmed cases of imported dengue infection since April 24, 2019. DPHSS continues to receive reports of suspect cases as a result of the department’s increased community outreach and timely reporting by Guam healthcare providers.

As a reminder, the dengue virus is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito and cannot spread directly from person-to-person. Anyone who lives in or travels to an area where dengue virus is found can get it from mosquito bites.
