  • Dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, is an important mosquito-borne disease worldwide. It is caused by four related dengue viruses (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, DEN-4) that are related to the viruses that cause West Nile infection and yellow fever. Dengue can be carried by the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes which are commonly found in Lee County.
