Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can dengue fever be passed from person to person?
No, the virus is not spread by person to person contact or by exposure to respiratory secretions. The virus is spread when a mosquito bites an infected person and then bites a healthy person.
Q. If I have had dengue fever, can I get it again?
Yes, there are four serotypes of dengue virus. So, once you get dengue fever from one serotype, you can get it again from another serotype.
