(INTELLIHUB) The Florida Department of Health announced on Friday that three people in Miami-Dade County have contracted dengue fever virus in 2019 causing concern for residents, tourists, and passersby.

From the Miami Herald:

The three cases don’t seem to be related, the health department said in a statement. The department issued a mosquito-borne illness alert Friday after a resident of the county was diagnosed with the virus, which is spread through bites from infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. The Aedes also spread chikungunya and Zika virus.

Additionally, five more cases have been reported this year among travelers to the state.

Unfortunately, there is no vaccine or treatment available for the virus.
