Due to the dengue fever outbreak that has caused 109 deaths in India, where more than 50 thousand people have been affected this year, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia has issued a travel warning for travelers to India.

Cases of dengue fever usually escalate during and just after the rainy season, normally lasting from June to September, but this year the outbreak has extended until October in some Indian states.

A large proportion of the casualties of dengue fever are foreign tourists and travelers. Therefore the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has suggested that travelers from Mongolia to India do not travel if it is not necessary or if travel is necessary to avoid walking near still water and to use mosquito repellent in order to prevent mosquito bites.
