Cook Islands Travel Guide

Health

Health

There have been infrequent outbreaks of dengue fever in the Cook Islands, about every five years or so. The best prevention is to always wear tropical-strength insect repellant. The symptoms of dengue, also known as "breakbone fever," are nausea, headaches, sore throat, joint pains, chills, and a rash. There's no vaccine; bed rest and fluids are the only ways to recover.
