Health officials have confirmed seven new cases of dengue fever on Hawaii Island, bringing the total to 56.
The cases include 15 children.
Dengue fever is transmitted by mosquitoes, spurring the state Health Department to spray areas of Hawaii Island where dengue fever has been reported.
Health officials say the outbreak started Sept. 11. Ten of those who got sick were visitors.
The Health Department is asking Hawaii Island residents to take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus, which include getting rid of standing water and wearing insect repellent.
Dengue fever is a virus, and is not endemic to the islands.
