Dengue Fever is primarily carried by the Aedes Mosquito and impacts the Mid-East, South-East Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, China, Central and South America, and the tropical and sub-tropical areas of India.  The fever is spread when the mosquito bites a person infected with one of the four related dengue viruses and transfers this by biting others.
