Dengue Fever epidemic

Currently in Asuncion there is a Dengue Fever epidemic. Things have gotten a lot worse in the last week, the government is now estimating that 50-70% of the population of Asuncion will catch this disease. We know of two other mission partners who have already suffered it. Several people in the city have died from a rarer form that causes haemorrhaging.
