Additional Information:
Dengue virus is a leading cause of illness and death in the tropics and subtropics. As many as 400 million people are infected yearly. There are not yet any vaccines to prevent infection with Dengue virus and the most effective protective measures are those that avoid mosquito bites. When infected, early recognition and prompt supportive treatment can substantially lower the risk of medical complications and death.
