NCKU has dealt with an outbreak of dengue fever on campus since early August and an on-going campaign against dengue to engage communities against dengue has proven effective.

We will remain vigilant and continue to implement the campus cleanup vector mosquito breeding sources and most importantly work as a community to respond to the dengue threat, said Professor Tzen-Yuh Chiang from the Department of Life Sciences at NCKU.
