(7/17/2010)

Bali Post reports that there has been a dramatic increase in the number of dengue Hemorrhagic fever cases (deman berdarah) reported in Bali's southernmost regency of Badung during the first half of 2010.

Through the end of June 2010, Badung logged 1,675 dengue cases, a dramatic increase from the 1,400 cases recorded in all of 2009.

Health authorities are pointing to changes in climate as a major contributing cause of the increase.

The Badung Health Service attributes 4 deaths among the 1,675 cases. Gede Putra Suteja, head of the Badung Health Office, told the press the current high level of cases is emblematic of the typical 5 year cycle of the disease, suggesting a decrease in infections will soon follow. He also pointed to uneven weather patterns with occasional rains as aiding the reproduction of the mosquitoes that spread the disease.

Suteja said his office remains steadfast in identifying and destroying nesting locations for mosquitoes as well as fogging local communities. Unfortunately, he also said his office was restricted in combating the disease by a lack of equipment and funding.

Most at risk of being infected are people living in urban settings. Major hotels and villas in Bali have rigorous mosquito eradication programs in place, reducing the risk of infection to guests.
