Description:

Dengue fever is a serious disease, which is transmitted from a certain type of mosquito. Dengue fever has reached pandemic status in most of the tropical countries. Urbanization, lack of mosquito control, and modern transportation accelerate the spread of the virus. Stored-water systems versus piped-water systems encourage mosquito breeding. More air travel to tropical areas increases the potential for the spread of the disease.
