What is Dengue?
Dengue is an infectious disease caused by a virus transmitted by the tiger mosquito. In most cases dengue infections are asymptomatic and therefore not even noticed. When symptoms do occur, this is called dengue fever. Symptoms of dengue fever include fever, headache, muscle/limb pain, and a red blotchy skin rash. In most cases, these symptoms resolve on their own, but they can be severe.
