The outbreak of dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) has infected 950 people with eight deaths in Myanmar's Sagaing region in seven months this year, according to the Health Department Wednesday.

During the period, residents in Yinmabin, Kale, Pale, Monywa and Salingyi towns in the region were mostly affected by the dengue fever.

The DHF disease, a mosquito-borne disease, is mostly common in rainy season.

Overcrowding, lack of sanitation, unhygienic water storage are blamed for causing the infectious disease.
