What Do We Need to Know About Dengue Fever in Hawai‘i?

Air date: Thurs., Dec. 17, 8:00 pm


Since September, at least 145 cases of dengue fever have been confirmed on
Hawai‘i Island, making it one of the biggest outbreaks in state history. The
mosquito-borne virus causes high fevers, headaches, joint pain and rash,
and may require hospitalization. Federal, state and county agencies are
working together to contain the outbreak, but critics say more aggressive
measures are in order.
