07 SEP –
There are 10 confirmed cases of Dengue transmitted locally in Italy and notified as of 4 September 2023. These cases refer to three unconnected transmission episodes in the province of Lodi (7 confirmed cases), in the province of Rome (1 case) and in the province of Latina (2 cases). All cases have recovered or are improving. From the beginning of the year to 6 September, 122 cases of Dengue diagnosed in Italy but contracted in other countries were also reported. Updated data is available online in the Dengue dashboard, updated weekly.
The situation described is in line with what was expected this season, considering the increase in international travel after the COVID-19 emergency and the climatic conditions favorable to the proliferation of Aedes albopictus mosquitoes (so-called tiger mosquitoes) which can transmit the Dengue virus. In all cases, disinfestation measures against mosquitoes were implemented and, in the areas where there was local transmission, all the preventive measures envisaged to protect transplants and transfusions were activated. In 2023, in addition to Italy, outbreaks of autochthonous Dengue were notified in France. In past years, outbreaks of this type have been confirmed in several European countries including Croatia, France, Spain and Italy.
