Two persons had dengue hemorrhagic fever however based on the timeline, he said those individuals would have been cleared.

The Health minister said to combat the spread of dengue, fogging has been stepped up as well as public awareness activities.  

Steele noted dengue must be tackled the same way COVID-19 was handled, which means the public must do its part to stop mosquito breeding sites around the home.
