Authorities in northern Queensland have mounted a major public health and vector control campaign after the country’s first death related to dengue fever since 2004 was confirmed on 4 March. More than 650 cases of the mosquito borne disease have been confirmed in the area since December, whereas in previous recent episodes 500 or so cases had been spread over more than a year, and this is the first time in Australia that all four serotypes have been found circulating simultaneously.

Dengue: Emergence, Determinants and Climate Change
Dengue transmission involves a complex ecology, contributed through various factors such as virus, vector, host and environment, and how climate change will impact its future distribution and transmission dynamics is discussed.
The geographic distribution of dengue fever and the potential influence of global climate change
The geographic distribution of dengue transmission has generally contracted, despite increases in global average temperature in the past century, and models estimating changes to geographic boundaries of transmission suggest an increase in the future population at risk of d Dengue.
Dengue in the context of “safe blood” and global epidemiology: to screen or not to screen?
A “worst-case” scenario is an emerging blood-borne pathogen that is responsible for mostly asymptomatic infections in healthy individuals and is only detected when clinically-important morbidities and/or mortality are observed in immunosuppressed transfusion recipients revealing the significance of the new transfusion-transmitted pathogen.
A comparative analysis of three vector-borne diseases across Australia using seasonal and meteorological models
A Temperature Suitability Index (TSI), designed to reclassify climate data relative to optimal conditions for vector establishment, could be applied to this context and created and extrapolated the models to estimate the impact of a false-positive BFV epidemic in 2013.
