Dengue outbreaks hit Far North Queensland

Since late last year there have been two outbreaks in the state's north – 58 cases in Cairns and 17 in Port Douglas.
Fourteen new cases have been reported in the past week.

Cairns Tropical Public Health Unit director Dr Richard Gair said the outbreak is significant but not as bad as an outbreak in 2009 when more than 1000 people were infected.
