Health officials have confirmed 26 cases of dengue fever in Hawaii?s first outbreak of the mosquito-borne disease in more than 50 years. Our warming climate means that disease-bearing mosquitoes will be likely to move north, bringing with them diseases that have traditionally been seen only much closer to the equator.
The Dengue Fever outbreak is not believed to be related to any sort of bioterrorism. Dengue Fever is not considered a bio weapon. It must be communicated to the human body by mosquitos.
