The Complicated Art of Tracking Dengue
Compared with malaria, dengue fever has a rather lower profile in the public mind, although to those who have had it, it leaves a great impression. The name dengue fever is derived from the Swahiliwords Ki denga pepo (“it is a sudden overtaking by an evil spirit”), which gives an idea of the rapid onset of the disease. The dengue virus is carried by the mosquito Aedes aegypti, and the disease often occurs as epidemics. Although the classic illness is a fairly benign acute febrile syndrome, it may be very painful—hence the English nickname, breakbone fever.
