The Norwegian and Danish TV-reality show Robinson Expedition has been stopped due to an outbreak of dengue fever. For now all the crew and participants are kept behind closed doors in the Malaysian city of Johor Bahru tells TV3’s Danish press officer Søren Hedman.
The production team will decide what to do this Wednesday or Thursday. But more details are not known for now the only one thing certain is that the production will not return to the island Pulau Besar, where the disease broke out.
“Right now we don’t know what will happen, but there are many possibilities. The decision will be taken this Wednesday or Thursday,” says Søren Hedman from TV3.
TV3 was last week forced to evacuate the Danish and Norwegian team from a tropical island in Malaysia after several of the 200- strong team has been hit by high fever and other symptoms.
More than 24 persons with connection to Robinson had been diagnosed with dengue fever so far on Monday 31st May. Last one was the Danish TV-host Jakob Kjeldberg.
