  <播放语音>

No dengue vaccine is currently available. Prospects for reversing the recent trend of increased epidemic activity and geographic expansion of dengue are not promising. In recent years public health authorities have emphasized disease prevention by mosquito control through community efforts to reduce larval breeding sources. Although this approach will probably be effective in the long run, it is unlikely to impact disease transmission in the near future.

登革热疫苗还没有被开发出来。要扭转当前登革热不断上升的流行和地区性扩散趋势,前景并不乐观。近几年,公共卫生当局重点通过集体灭蚊、减少幼虫繁育场所来预防疾病。这种方法虽然从长远来看大概会是有效的,但对近期内疾病的传播可能影响不大。
