Dengue represents a serious public health problem in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. The number of dengue cases and its geographical expansion has increased in recent decades, driven mostly after by social and environmental factors. In Costa Rica, it has been endemic since it was first introduced in 1993. In this article, wavelet analyzes (wavelet power spectrum and wavelet coherence) were performed to detect and quantify dengue periodicity and describe patterns of synchrony between… Expand

Dengue Dynamics in Binh Thuan Province, Southern Vietnam: Periodicity, Synchronicity and Climate Variability
Insight is provided in dengue population transmission dynamics over the past 14.5 years as a multi-annual mode of oscillation was observed and these 2–3-year waves of infection probably started outside Binh Thuan province. Expand
Urban structure and dengue incidence in Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Dengue is currently the most important arboviral disease globally and is usually associated with built environments in tropical areas. Remotely sensed information can facilitate the study of urbanExpand
Wavelet analysis of dengue transmission pattern in Sri Lanka
Dengue fever is a deadly infectious mosquito borne disease that has placed an enormous economic burden upon the health system in Sri Lanka. The geographic distribution of dengue, both classicalExpand
Spatiotemporal clustering, climate periodicity, and social-ecological risk factors for dengue during an outbreak in Machala, Ecuador, in 2010
Wavelet analyses revealed that dengue transmission co-varied with rainfall and minimum temperature at annual and biannual cycles, and it was found that anomalously high rainfall and temperatures were associated with the 2010 outbreak. Expand
Modeling the Non-Stationary Climate Dependent Temporal Dynamics of Aedes aegypti
The results support the presence of transient relationships between meteorological variables and mosquito abundance, and may be explained by the ability of Ae. Expand
Economic Impact of Dengue Illness in the Americas
The results highlight the substantial economic burden from dengue in the Americas, and the burden for d Dengue exceeds that from other viral illnesses, such as human papillomavirus (HPV) or rotavirus. Expand
Ecological Factors Influencing Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) Productivity in Artificial Containers in Salinas, Puerto Rico
It is interpreted that food limitation or competition existed in a number of containers and to a lesser extent, there was lack of negative larval density effects in containers with a larger water volume and lower temperature, where emerging females were not under nutritional stress. Expand
