Aedes Aegypti in Portugal

EuroSurveillance had a good article released about the increase in Aedes mosquitoes in Madeira, Portugal. This is of importance beacuse the species of mosquito is known for carrying Dengue Fever and Chikungunya virus. Chickungunya outbreaks were recently seen in Italy.

Portugal is now devoting some research into the effects this will have on the people and reasons for the species of mosquito to be in the area, as well as vector control.
