Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) yesterday urged government agencies to work together to "break the curse" of the four-year cycle of dengue fever outbreaks in Taiwan. Su made the comment after getting a briefing from the Dengue Fever Control Center. Su said that during the last dengue fever outbreak in 2002, more than 5,000 people were infected and 21 died. More than 300 dengue cases have been reported so far this year, he said. "I think we are capable of preventing the spread" of a dengue epidemic, Su said.
