Woman Dies of Hemorrhagic Dengue in Bolivian Amazon Region

LA PAZ – A woman died from hemorrhagic dengue in Bolivia’s northern Beni province, in the Amazon region, a local official reported Thursday.

The woman, who lived in the Beni town of Loreto, died after being intensively treated for a week in a hospital in Trinidad, the provincial capital, Loreto Mayor Gaby Balcazar said, as reported by the state-run ABI news agency.

This is the first death from dengue reported in Bolivia so far this year, given that during the last rainy season nobody was said to have died of the disease.

Bolivia’s rainy season lasts from October to March and it is during that time that dengue spreads, with the humidity and stagnant water fostering the mosquitoes that carry and transmit it.

Between October 2013 and May of this year, 1,800 confirmed cases of dengue were registered in Bolivia, but none of those people died, according to Health Ministry figures.
