Malaysian tourist diagnosed with Dengue in Taiwan

Taipei – Taipei’s Department of Health on Monday reported an imported case of dengue fever, which involved a Malaysian teenager who traveled to Taiwan with his family last week.

The 16-year-old tested positive for dengue fever after seeking medical attention at a local hospital on Dec. 5, the department said.

The patient told his doctor that he was already diagnosed with dengue fever in Malaysia on Dec. 4, but because his condition improved without experiencing a fever, he decided to travel to Taiwan as planned, the department said, adding that the tourist has left Taiwan.

As of Monday morning, 79 indigenous cases of dengue fever and 64 imported cases have been recorded in Taipei, the department said.
