Global travellers warned of spike in dengue fever – Yahoo!7

The medical director for International SOS for the Americas, Dr Robert Quigley, has been researching what he says could be an increase in the number of cases of the disease.

Although dengue is endemic in 110 countries around the world, Dr Quigley says he believes an increase in the number of travellers to endemic areas and a lack of understanding that dengue is found in urban and sub-urban areas is fuelling the increase in infection rates.
