The Spread of Dengue FeverDr. Jim Fredericks
Sunday, November 24, 2013
last week about the presence of Dengue fever-carrying mosquitoes being found in the
United States, as well as reported cases of the tropical disease in
Florida. A recent update yesterday brings this threat to the
Northeast as well.
A man on Long Island is confirmed to have had the first ever
case of Dengue fever contracted in New York State. The
diagnosis came after the man had already recovered, but the
presence of the disease so far north is alarming.
