(2013). Detection on four continents of dengue fever cases related to an ongoing outbreak in Luanda, Angola, March to May 2013. Eurosurveillance 18 (21) : 20488-. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||In April 2013, ten cases of dengue fever in travellers returning from Luanda, Angola, to five countries on four continents, were reported to the globally distributed GeoSentinel Surveillance network. Dengue virus serotype 1 was identified in two cases. The findings indicate that a major dengue outbreak is currently ongoing in Luanda. This report illustrates how cases from an emerging arboviral epidemic focus can spread internationally and highlights the risk of dissemination of a vector-borne disease into receptive areas. © 2007-2013.
