Dengue Virus

We're the Dengue Virus!
We're Flaviviruses.

We're found in the tropics.

We hitch a ride on an Aedes mosquito.
When she bites you, we get left behind.

We are 4 types.
A visit from one of us makes you sick with Dengue fever.
But we 'cross react' with each other.

So when another one of us visits, you get very sick.

You get Dengue haemorrhagic fever and can die.
