Dengue is common in over 100 countries with 40% of the world’s population inhabiting areas that have a risk of the virus. With up to 400 million individuals infected with the virus each year, dengue is typically the prominent cause of illness in at risk areas. The CDC states that “approximately 100 million people get sick from infection, and 22,000 die from severe dengue.” (CDC, 2019). The Aedes mosquito that is a big, disease-carrying threat in South America is also a threat here in Central Texas.
