An ISI article by Dr. Yasir Isar, a researcher at Kateb Research Center, entitled “Dengue and COVID-19: A double burden to Brazil” with the impact factor of 2 in the journal of “Journal of Medical Virology”.
Dengue is a major health concern in Brazil since it first appeared in 1845. The tropical climate of Brazil, characterized by high temperatures and humid conditions, provides a favorable environment for the development of the dengue vector, the Aedes aegypti mosquito. As a result of climatic conditions and population size, the country recorded the highest incidence of dengue in South America in three explosive national epidemics, in 2002, 2008, and 2010. Following the last major outbreak, the number of cases of the disease declined, until 2019, when the cases increased again and exceeded 2 million in 1 year.
