According to the Italian health authority, the situation described is in line with expectations for this season, as international travel has increased following the COVID 19 emergency and climatic conditions favor the proliferation of Aedes albopictus mosquitoes (also known as tiger mosquitoes), which can transmit dengue virus. Optimal mosquito protection especially during the day. In case of fever: take paracetamol preparations and ensure sufficient fluid intake. Do not take medications containing acetylsalicylic acid (e.g. Aspirin®), as these increase the risk of bleeding during a dengue infection.
