Dengue Virus Net is the web resource for anyone interested in dengue. Dengue is a mosquito-borne infection that causes a severe flu-like illness (dengue fever), and sometimes a potentially lethal complication called dengue haemorrhagic fever. Global incidence of dengue has grown dramatically in recent decades. About two fifths of the world's population are now at risk. Dengue is found in tropical and sub-tropical climates worldwide, mostly in urban and semi-urban areas. Dengue is transmitted to humans by the Aedes aegypti or more rarely the Aedes albopictus mosquito, which feed during the day. Dengue haemorrhagic fever is a leading cause of serious illness and death among children in some Asian countries. A vaccine for dengue fever has been approved by the FDA in May 2019 and is commercially available in a number of countries.
The objectives of Dengue Virus Net are to be the public and professional information resource for dengue and to serve as a network in the exchange of information and news related to dengue.

COVID-19 -- United States
A new study [see comment below] estimates that the number of people who have died of COVID-19 in the U.S. is more than 900 000, a number 57% higher than official figures.
Worldwide, the study's authors say, the COVID-19 death count is nearing 7 million, more than double the reported number of 3.24 million. 
The analysis comes from researchers at the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation [IHME], who looked at excess mortality from March 2020 through 3
- Wide and increasing suitability for Aedes albopictus in Europe is congruent across distribution models Tue, 11 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
The Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus), a vector of dengue, Zika and other diseases, was introduced in Europe in the 1970s, where it is still widening its range. Spurred by public health concerns, several studies have delivered predictions of the current and future distribution of the species for this region, often with differing results. We provide the first joint analysis of these predictions, to identify consensus hotspots of high and low suitability, as well as areas with high...
- Dengue in pregnancy: Review article Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Dengue is the most common viral mosquito- borne disease. It is a major public health problem, especially in tropical and sub-tropical areas worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 40% of the world's population (over 2.5 billion people) live in areas with high risk of contracting dengue infection. Adults of childbearing age and pregnant women are travelling more frequently to tropical areas. Therefore exposing themselves to specific arboviral infections such as...
- Insecticide resistance status and mechanisms in Aedes aegypti populations from Senegal Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Aedes aegypti is the main epidemic vector of arboviruses in Africa. In Senegal, control activities are mainly limited to mitigation of epidemics, with limited information available for Ae. aegypti populations. A better understanding of the current Ae. aegypti susceptibility status to various insecticides and relevant resistance mechanisms involved is needed for the implementation of effective vector control strategies. The present study focuses on the detection of insecticide resistance and...
- Mortality among Hospitalized Dengue Patients with Comorbidities in Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Dengue patients with comorbidities may be at higher risk of death. In this cross-sectional study, healthcare databases from Mexico (2008-2014), Brazil (2008-2015), and Colombia (2009-2017) were used to identify hospitalized dengue cases and their comorbidities. Case fatality rates (CFRs), relative risk, and odds ratios (OR) for in-hospital mortality were determined. Overall, 678,836 hospitalized dengue cases were identified: 68,194 from Mexico, 532,821 from Brazil, and 77,821 from Colombia. Of...
- Development of an Index for the Inspection of Aedes aegypti Breeding Sites in Brazil: Multi-criteria Analysis Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
CONCLUSIONS: The proposed index could aid public health practitioners in preventing the appearance of new A. aegypti breeding sites. This information technology application can help solve such public health challenges.
- Potent programmable antiviral against dengue virus in primary human cells by Cas13b RNP with short spacer and delivery by virus-like particle Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
With sequencing as a standard frontline protocol to identify emerging viruses such Zika virus and SARS-CoV-2, direct utilization of sequence data to program antivirals against the viruses could accelerate drug development to treat their infections. CRISPR-Cas effectors are promising candidates that could be programmed to inactivate viral genetic material based on sequence data but several challenges such as delivery and design of effective crRNA need to be addressed to realize practical use....
- Dengue Virus Infection Presenting as Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis Type 1 Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
The renal complications of dengue virus infection cover a wide spectrum of manifestations from acute kidney injury to glomerular injury with nephritic/nephrotic syndrome. Majority of cases remain symptom free and show full recovery. We present a 61-year-old previously healthy male who developed a pyrexial illness with haemolytic anaemia that was diagnosed on the basis of a positive serological test as a case of dengue fever. He received supportive treatment and showed general recovery except for...
- Tetraspanins as Potential Therapeutic Candidates for Targeting Flaviviruses Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Tetraspanin family of proteins participates in numerous fundamental signaling pathways involved in viral transmission, virus-specific immunity, and virus-mediated vesicular trafficking. Studies in the identification of novel therapeutic candidates and strategies to target West Nile virus, dengue and Zika viruses are highly warranted due to the failure in development of vaccines. Recent evidences have shown that the widely distributed tetraspanin proteins may provide a platform for the...
- Modeling, analysis and prediction of new variants of covid-19 and dengue co-infection on complex network Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Recently, four new strains of SARS-COV-2 were reported in different countries which are mutants and considered as 70 % more dangerous than the existing covid-19 virus. In this paper, hybrid mathematical models of new strains and co-infection in Caputo, Caputo-Fabrizio, and Atangana-Baleanu are presented. The idea behind this co-infection modeling is that, as per medical reports, both dengue and covid-19 have similar symptoms at the early stages. Our aim is to evaluate and predict the...
- Vector management of arbovirosis cases notified in the city of Valencia, Spain (2016-2018). Mon, 10 May 2021 06:00:00 -0400
CONCLUSIONS: Vector surveillance and control strategies associated with imported cases of arboviruses, provide accurate information on the environmental risks of amplification of these viruses and also allow reducing these risks through population control of vectors. Due to the short duration of the viremic phases, these interventions should be carried out as quickly as possible in order to reduce the hypothetical contact between the infected person and vector as much as possible.
