Standard Club advised that the Philippines declared a national dengue virus epidemic in early August after reporting a significant increase in dengue cases from 2018. Dengue is spread through infected mosquitos; therefore, operators should be aware that crew members embarking from the Philippines may be carriers of the dengue virus.
The London P&I Club warns of an outbreak of dengue fever reported currently in Paranaguá, Brazil which causes a flu-like illness sometimes complicated by haemorrhages or shock and advises to take precautions.
