Dengue fever is a mosquito borne illness that can be very painful and in some rare cases , deadly. Cases are common in countries like the PhilippinesVietnam and India but dengue is starting to show up in Western Europe and the southern US.  The Natural Resources Defense Council recently released Fever Pitch a detailed account of the predicted increase in dengue fever cases in the USA.

Mosquitoes capable of spreading dengue are now found in 26 US states. Key West has reported a number of cases and many experts predict that other areas in the southeast can expect similar outbreaks.  The French Riviera recently experienced an outbreak for the 1st time ever.

We are watching the dengue fever situation and will be suggesting ways to minimize the impact for both residents and travelers in infected areas.
