Abstract
Following report of cases of locally transmitted dengue infection in the Autonomous Region of Madeira, Portugal, ECDC has produced a rapid risk assessment. It concludes that the risk for travellers and residents will depend on the course of the outbreak in the coming weeks and the effectiveness of the control measures currently being implemented. The epidemiological situation does not imply any trade or travel restriction or other measure beyond the disinfestations currently being carried out.
