Fiji has recorded 791 cases of dengue fever as of last Monday.
There have also been 278 confirmed cases of leptospirosis and 77 cases of typhoid.
Minister for Health Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete says the number of cases this year are far less than numbers recorded in previous years.
Dr Waqainabete says this is mainly due to the work happening with other stakeholders around the country to ensure that people are safe from these communicable diseases.
He said people will need to work together in this nationwide clean up campaigns to completely eradicate communicable diseases from our communities.
“Because at the end of the day, communicable disease knows no barrier. When it spreads, it spreads it does not understand ethnicity or religion and we have to collectively work together as a nation to continue to suppress this.”
There have been seven deaths recorded due to leptospirosis, dengue fever and typhoid.
