    Dengue cases 'explode' by 57% in Brazil during January

    Health Minister Arthur Chioro said the water shortage has led many people to store water in their homes out of fear that their supply could be cut off

    Dengue cases in Brazil rose by 57% in January, an increase that the Brazilian government partially attributed to the water crisis in the country's southeastern region. In the first four weeks of the year, Brazil registered 40,196 cases of dengue, compared with 26,017 in the same period of 2014, the Brazilian Health Ministry said.
