From 3,164 suspected DHF cases there were 1,868 paired serum and all of them were tested with H.I. against D2 antigen from Biofarma based on microtechnique method by Clark and Cassals. Among them 1,310 were positive (70.1%) according to WHO Criteria. Analysis of DHF cases with positive H.I. test shows that the number of DHF cases started to increase continuously from February 1986, until June 1987 with a second and third peak on January and April 1987.
