Mode of Transmission
Portal of Entry
Microscopic view of Dengue Fever virus
This disease cannot spread directly from person to person. On the other hand, a mosquito can transfer the disease.
When a mosquito bites an infected person, it becomes infected. When that same infected mosquito bites another person, that person then becomes infected with the disease.
Dengue Fever can affect any person,but especially a person with a weak immune system.Being in tropical and subtropical areas around the world increases your risk of exposure to the virus.
