Samoa on high alert from deadly virus ahead of All Blacks Test
18 june 2015 - TVNZ.

Samoa is on high alert for a fatal strain of dengue that has hit neighbouring American Samoa.

Thousands of visitors are expected to visit the island nation in three weeks when the All Blacks play Samoa, but the dengue health scare is worrying local authorities after at least two people died of the mosquito borne virus.

Samoa is fumigating every one of the five daily flights from nearby American Samoa in a bid to catch the virus at its border.
