Dengue death toll

Fatalities stemming from a dengue fever outbreak continue to rise reaching 259 by

July 26 with 22,099 cases reported. The outbreak is not only limited to Cambodia

but is prevalent throughout the region. Director of the National Malaria Center,

Doung Socheat, said a slight decrease in cases this month has sparked hopes of a

reprieve from the spiraling number of dengue cases. The World Health Organization

said it harbored concerns about a possible major outbreak in the West Pacific region.
