The Ministry of Health announced on Thursday that there have been a total of 3,035 cases of dengue reported through December 20 of this year.
If the math is correct, this figure is more than triple the 904 cases reported last year.

This year, the metropolitan region leads the dengue list with 752, followed by Bocas del Toro with 600, Panama West with 342, San Miguelito with 236, Herrera with 200, and Chiriqui with 194.

Health authorities launched an attack against dengue, also known as break bone fever, on December 16 with a fumigation campaign to smoke out the Aedes Egyptian mosquito, responsible for the transmission of this infectious tropical disease.
