MIAMI, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County has confirmed a case of locally-acquired Dengue fever in Miami-Dade County. Dengue is spread primarily through the bite of infected mosquitoes. The individual has received medical treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.

 

The department is investigating close contacts around the individual to determine if additional people are infected. Miami-Dade Mosquito Control has been notified and is conducting aggressive mosquito control efforts in the area of concern.

 

Dengue fever can present as a severe flu-like illness with muscle aches and pains, fever and sometimes a rash. Symptoms generally appear within 14 days of being bitten by an infected mosquito and last for up to a week.

 

The presence of locally-acquired Zika cases and a locally-acquired Dengue case reinforces the need for Miami-Dade County residents to take precautions to prevent mosquito bites by wearing insect repellent and protective clothing and draining sources of standing water to keep mosquitoes from breeding.

 

This is the second case of locally-acquired Dengue in Florida this year and the first case in Miami-Dade County.
