“We are not recording mass appeals from Russian citizens regarding Dengue.

The risk of contracting a fever is approximately the same every year.

In 2023, over 80 thousand cases were registered.

About 50 people died,” the embassy said in a statement.

The diplomatic mission also, in addition to the use of repellents and other precautions, strongly recommended purchasing an insurance policy for the entire period of the tourist trip.

Earlier, information appeared in the media that Russian tourists were allegedly complaining about the dengue virus epidemic in Sri Lanka. 

The press service of the association “Association of Tour Operators in the Field of Outbound Tourism “Turpomosch”” commented on RT and stated that tourists from Russia did not contact us about this situation.
