Indonesian Dengue Death Toll Rises To 161 - Reuters
Advertisements [?]
JAKARTA - The death toll from a dengue fever outbreak hitting Indonesia's sprawling archipelago has climbed to 161, said health ministry data this week.

Dengue fever has traditionally been a killer across the world's fourth-most-populous nation, but the death toll so far this year is more than double the same period last year.

The latest figure was compiled from all of Indonesia's 32 provinces, while a count of 91 dead on Tuesday covered just seven and excluded densely populated Central Java. "The number of deaths due to dengue fever from all of the provinces as of February 18 is 161," ministry spokeswoman Mariani Reksoprodjo told reporters.

The total number of cases reported was 8,135."
