Previously, a seven-year- old boy in Ea Sup District of Dak Lak province suffered from persistent fever.
After two day self-medication at home, the boy was brought to Ea Sup District Healthcare Center yet his condition did not show sign of abating.
The kid was rushed to the Central Highlands General Hospital on October 16 when he suffered cold arms and legs and unmeasurable blood pressure.
The medical staffs diagnosed him to have serious dengue fever in its sixth day. The patient was pronounced dead on that night.
