Dear students and staffs of Kaohsiung Medical University,
As the weather is getting cooler, dengue fever has also reached its peak period. The risk of spreading dengue fever increases during rainy days while mosquitoes larvae living in still and stagnant water. To Dengue fever prevention, please note the following:
- Drain water containers and clean up vector breeding sites around your residences.
- Wear light-colored clothing, long sleeves and long pants, and apply mosquito repellent as required.
- If symptoms of fever, headache, postorbital pain, myalgia, arthralgia, and rash appear, please seek medical treatment immediately.
