Some townships see an outbreak of dengue fever not only early but also later. There are also townships that do not see dengue fever at all. Myaungmya did not see it early. Pyapon and Hinthada are strange. They see it not only early but also later,” said Dr Myat Min of Public Health Department of Ayeyawady Region.
