More cases of dengue fever in Sweden

Globalization and the ease of travel have brought yet another tropical disease to Sweden, dengue fever.

The Swedish Institute for Communicable Disease Control warns that last year there were 151 cases of the acutely infectious virus among travellers arriving from abroad here, compared to 100 in 2009. Around half of those carrying the disease were infected in Thailand, where dengue fever is common.

Dengue fever is carried by mosquitoes and there is no vaccine, Common symptoms are fever, headache, and pain in the muscles and joints. Infections can lead to life-threatening disorders such as such as dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome.
