cells called platelets. Indeed, over 20,000 deaths occur annually from this “hemorrhagic” form of dengue fever, many more than from the more widely recognized Ebola virus. Dengue fever is spread by the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito. The insect thrives in large cities of tropical regions with the result that almost three billion people are at risk of catching the disease, including unsuspecting travelers to Asia, Africa, and parts of South America. Experts estimate that the incidence of dengue fever is probably under-reported, as the infection mimics flu symptoms. Physicians in endemic areas commonly hospitalize tourists who are diagnosed with dengue fever for five to six days to make sure that the hemorrhagic form of the illness does not manifest.
