Health. Two cases of dengue reported in Gard

This Tuesday, September 19, the Occitanie Regional Health Agency (ARS) was notified of two cases of transmission of the dengue virus in people who had not recently traveled to tropical areas. The sick have been treated and their health is not a cause for concern.

In response to these autochthonous* cases of dengue and to prevent the local spread of the virus, preventive actions to combat mosquitoes are being deployed in places frequented and suspected of contamination, in Rochefort-du-Gard, near Avignon, and in Gagnières (village of the Gard located on the edge of the Ardèche).

Dengue is a generally mild illness whose flu-like symptoms (high fever, joint pain, severe headache) can be temporarily disabling. It is transmitted through the bite of a tiger mosquito previously infected with the virus to a person during their illness.

A case is said to be “indigenous” when a person contracts the disease without having traveled to an area where the virus is circulating in the 15 days before symptoms appear.
