The Brazilian government says there has been a 50% increase in the number of cases of dengue fever this year. Health officials say the rise is due to the country's prolonged drought in the heavily populated southern states. They say people were storing water inadequately in open containers allowing mosquitoes to breed.

The governor of the Mexican state of Veracruz has said that high levels of violence have nothing to do with the cancellation of a popular international literary festival in the capital Xalapa. On Friday organisers of the UK Hay festival, who promote literary meets in cities around the world, decided to pull out this year's gathering in Xalapa and host an online conference instead.

巴西政府表示今年登革热的病例上升了50%。卫生官员表示患病人数的增多是因为该国南部人口众多的多个州干旱时间过长。他们称由于人们在没盖的储水罐里以不恰当的方式储水,蚊子得以滋生。

墨西哥韦拉克鲁斯州州长表示,目前大规模的暴力活动与国际文学节的取消无关,国际文学节广受民众欢迎,本来是要在该州首府哈拉帕举办的。周五,在全世界各大城市推广文学聚会的英国文学节组织者决定退出今年在哈拉帕举行的聚会,转而在网上主持该节。
