    Dengue is a viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes which predominantly feed between dawn and dusk. Symptoms of dengue can include high fever, muscle and joint pains, headache, nausea, vomiting and rash. Most infections are self-limiting with improvement in symptoms and recovery occurring three to four days after the onset of the rash. About million contracted symptomatic dengue in and more t died, resulting in approximate global costs of $ billion, according to a new study in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.. Researchers from Brandeis University and the University of Washington estimated incidence, case fatality, and economic burden of symptomatic dengue cases in countries and territories, using.   Countries and territories where chikungunya cases have been reported* (as of Ap ) *Does not include countries or territories where only imported cases have been documented. This map is updated weekly if there are new countries or territories that .   New figures from the Health Protection Agency (HPA) reveal that cases of dengue fever have more than doubled in and chikungunya cases have increased by 34% in UK travellers.

Quantifying the Impact of Chikunguny a and Dengue on Tourism Revenues 1. Research Problem Immediate cost of vector ‐ borne diseases such as chikungunya and dengue.

Downloadable. Health economists have traditionally quantified the burden of vector-borne diseases (such as chikungunya and dengue) as the sum of the cost of illness and the cost of intervention programmes.

The objective of this paper is to predict the order of magnitude of possible reduction in tourism revenues if a major epidemic of chikungunya or dengue were to discourage visits by.

Quantifying the Impact of Chikungunya and Dengue on Tourism Revenues. Article. Introduction. Arboviral diseases, such as dengue and chikungunya, and now Zika, represent a public health problem especially in tropical countries, including those in Latin America, such as r, due to tourism and migration, also in non-endemic areas, as has been reported.Whilst the epidemiology of dengue and chikungunya is well known in many countries, including its Cited by:   Chikungunya and dengue are both acute febrile illnesses characterized by fever, myalgia, and lethargy.

Some patients may also have maculopapular rash, nausea, vomiting, and headache. Both species are vectors of exotic arthropod -borne viruses (arboviruses) including dengue, chikungunya, Zika, and yellow fever. Travel-associated human cases of dengue, chikungunya, and Zika have been reported in Cal ifornia, but none of these viruses are known to be transmitted locally by mosquitoes at present.

E stablished invasive Aedes. Living in over endemic countries and territories, billion people are at risk of dengue. Chikungunya is a mosquito-borne viral disease first described during an outbreak in southern Tanzania in The cause is an alphavirus of the family Togaviridae.

The clinical presentation of chikungunya is similar to dengue and Zika; however, in contrast to these other diseases, the majority of people infected with chikungunya are symptomatic.

49 After an incubation period ranging from 1–12 days (typically 3–7 days), viremia occurs, and symptoms develop. The fever is typically high grade with a. Infectious diseases in the developing and underdeveloped world are prime factors responsible for poor health status and poverty.

1, 2 The recent chikungunya viral epidemic in India highlights the impact of a debilitating infection in working populations and its particular impact on those from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

Chikungunya virus is a mosquito-transmitted alphavirus belonging to the Cited by: 8. distinguished from breakbone fever (present-day dengue), another febrile exanthem. In the twentieth century, experi-ments resulted in the recovery and naming of present-day dengue viruses.

Inchikungunya virus was recovered during an outbreak in Tanzania, but by then, the virus had lost its original name to present-day dengue viruses. Is it Chikungunya or Dengue. Chikungunya and dengue are viruses most commonly transmitted by Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes. Anyone who lives in or has traveled to an area where chikungunya or dengue viruses are found is at risk for infection.

AHMEDABAD: With temperatures not ceasing to go down, cases of vector-borne infections, especially those of dengue and chikungunya have increased in the city in the past month and a half.

According. Introduction. Dengue and chikungunya are arboviruses transmitted by the day-biting mosquitoes Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus [1,2].The vectors of these viruses currently circulate in large parts of the world, rendering 40% of the world population susceptible to these diseases [].Chikungunya led to devastating epidemics when introduced in the Americas at the end of [4,5].Cited by: 3.

The season for vector-borne diseases has come to an end, with a municipal report today saying that only 45 dengue cases were reported last week, taking the total number of people affected by the disease this year in the national capital to 9, The numbers of malaria and chikungunya cases recorded this year, till Decem stood at 1, and respectively, the report said.

Zika mosquito may transmit dengue, chikungunya with one bite The findings shed new light on what is known as a co- infection, which scientists say is not yet fully understood and may be fairly common in areas experiencing outbreaks.

There have always been dengue mosquito virus going around the tropics, and some years there are more cases than others. So, what you're really talking about is managing the risk.

Dengue mosquitos love dirty, stinky water, yet can also breed in a bottle cap full of fresh water. Author summary Arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) are among the most important of the emerging infectious disease public health problems facing the world.

The actual impact of arboviruses worldwide remains unknown, and estimating the true burden of these diseases represents a current challenge. Serological surveys are the most reliable tool for estimating the impact of arboviruses outbreaks Cited by: Chikungunya [risk] Risk of Chikungunya transmission is present throughout Costa Rica year-round.

[/risk] Description. Chikungunya is a viral infection caused by the CHIK virus belonging to the Togaviridae family. The virus is transmitted through the bite of infected daytime biting female – primarily Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus.

Both Dengue (DENV) and Chikungunya (CHIKV) viruses can be transmitted by Aedes mosquito species and the diseases that they cause have several clinical symptoms in common.

Co-circulation of DENV and CHIKV is increasing around the world and must therefore be considered as an emerging threat with an important public health concern. At present, very little is known about the clinical Cited by: 3.

Adult Mosquito Control – Adult mosquito control (‘spraying for mosquitoes’) is the least effective. Last year, there were lakh dengue cases and deaths in the country. TWO YEARS ago, the head of India’s top medical research organisation had said India was looking at newer strategies to combat dengue (The Indian Express, Septem ).Dr Soumya Swaminathan, then director-general of the Indian Council for Medical Research and now Deputy Director-General (Programmes).

The researchers, reporting July 16 in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, tested blood samples from 1, people across 50 locations in Chennai, a city with over 6 million people in South India, and found that nearly all of them had been exposed to dengue and 44 percent had been exposed to chikungunya.

Surprisingly, almost none of the people who. Chikungunya fever is an acute febrile illness caused by an arthropod-borne alphavirus, Chikungunya virus (CHIKV).

The virus is primarily transmitted to humans via the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. CHIKV was first recognized as a human pathogen during the s in Africa, and since then, cases have been identified in many countries in Africa and Asia [1, 2].Cited by: Author summary Aedes aegypti (“yellow fever mosquito”) is of great medical concern because it is the primary vector of important viruses causing dengue fever, chikungunya and Zika, as well as increasingly transmitting yellow fever once again.

Due to the Zika outbreak, which started in Brazil in and rapidly spread with million cases reported in Central/South America and the Caribbean Cited by: Mosquito-borne diseases, such as chikungunya, dengue and malaria are reemerging and expanding to new and formerly unaffected places leading to a need for models which can track their evolution.

This evolution is driven by the interactions between hosts and vectors and thus, is heavily dependent on factors like population distribution, human mobility and weather conditions.

Identifying dengue fever “hot spots” can provide a predictive map for outbreaks of chikungunya and Zika — two other viral diseases that, along with dengue, are spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases published the findings, the first confirmation of the spatial-temporal overlap for outbreaks of the three diseases, led by Emory University.

Study explores risk factors linked to chikungunya, dengue outbreaks Chikungunya and dengue are mosquito-borne viral diseases with overlapping distribution globally.

Dengue infections are on the rise globally, according to the World Health Organization. Both diseases are more likely to occur in tropical or subtropical regions. Identifying dengue fever 'hot spots' can provide a predictive map for outbreaks of chikungunya and Zika -- two other viral diseases that, along with dengue, are spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito.
