The number of people infected with the diseases of hand-foot-mouth, chickenpox and dengue fever is on the rise in southern Vietnam, local media reported Tuesday.

Southern economic hub Ho Chi Minh (HCM) City reported the most cases of dengue fever, the Saigon Times quoted sources with the Ministry of Health’s Prevention Medicine Department as reporting on Tuesday.

Specifically, in the first seven months of this year, over 9, 400 cases of dengue infection were reported in 42 out of 63 cities and provinces nationwide. In those cases, there were six deaths, with three in HCM City, one in southern Binh Duong and another in Binh Phuoc provinces.

According to Dr. Nguyen Tri Dung, director of HCM City’s Prevention Medicine Center, the rate of dengue cases in HCM City increased by 30 percent compared to the same period last year, with nearly 4,500 in-patient cases in the first seven months of this year.

Dengue fever often occurs in Vietnam’s southern provinces and peaks in September. On average, each year there are around 100,000 dengue-infected cases nationwide with about 100 deaths.

Symptoms of dengue fever include sudden high fever that lasts for two to seven days, during which the patients first have headache or pains in muscles or bone joints, then have bloody spots under the skin.

To date, there is not yet specific medicine against dengue, so doctors usually advise residents to take preventive measures, including hygienic eating and drinking, sleeping in anti-mosquito nets, and spraying insect-killer.
