Another person has died of dengue in New Caledonia, bringing the number of fatalities this year to seven.
The public broadcaster said the victim was a 57-year-old woman from Paita who died in Noumea's hospital on Saturday.
A dengue epidemic was declared in early January and about 2400 people have been infected in the current outbreak.
At start of the month, Jean-Paul Grangeon of New Caledonia's Health and Social Affairs Directorate said the outbreak was stabilising amid hope of a respite with cooler weather.
However, last week's Cyclone Cook has rekindled concerns that mosquito-borne diseases could spread again, with the public being told to be vigilant.
There are also fears that leptospirosis cases will increase after the cyclone.
