A DENGUE case has been confirmed in Port Vila, since last Friday, says the Ministry of Health.

The Director of Public Health, Len Tarivonda, said a female tourist from Finland was hospitalised last week.

He said the tourist had contracted the disease when she came through Fiji and the Solomon islands, before arriving in Vanuatu.

He said medical staff have quarantined her in hospital.
