Dengue Fever: Short epidemiological update, Americas – 8 July 2009

08 Jul 2009

From January 1st to June 26th 2009, a total of 480,909 cases of dengue have been reported in the Americas, including 7,547 cases of severe dengue (dengue hemorrhagic fever, dengue shock syndrome, and complicated dengue) and 186 deaths. A total of 91% of these cases have been reported from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Colombia [1]. However, due to the seasonal decrease of temperature in the southern regions of the sub-continent, mosquito activity is expected to decrease, followed by a decreased transmission of dengue virus.
