A 1995 outbreak of dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) occurred on Samui Island in Thailand with an incidence of almost 500 cases/100,000 population.

There were two species of DHF vectors, Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus prevailing on the island, and the population of Ae. aegypti remained relatively constant… CONTINUE READING
