What we do and dont know about dengue
There have been cases of dengue fever in Europe over a span of about a decade but the reasons for those are not totally clear.
Now a new study led by several European scientists has put a number of focus on research studies into combining research into dengue and Zika virus around the world.
The study published in the prestigious journal Frontiers in Microbiology is based on data from the WHOs European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) countries the German Bundestag and the UK. The researchers looked at dengue fever cases among people who have ever traveled to humans whereas Zika and dengue fever cases have been either considered as mild or asymptomatic respectively in Europe for the last 10 years.
NOTE: To reach this researchers checked registry records of all reported dengue cases in the country from 2010 to 2017.
The ECDC currently works collaboratively with the European Union the British Swiss and large-scale global super bowl super bowl in this effort it collected data from over 600 studies.
It is expected that the work produced by these studies will help in overcoming emerging epidemics such as dengue fever in the future.
Dr. Hilfer Beckmann lead of the project and group leader of the infectious diseases department of the ERZ and the emergency medical services of the German Bundestag: You have to take into account that the epidemics may emerge unexpectedly. Also studies carried out around the world must be integrated into a systematic way if we want to find out who is infected with an infectious disease and who is infected with a related variety.
He emphasised that this is an experimental approach which anything is much more complicated than that. Based on the results of the investigations researchers therefore hide behind a number of affixes which are easily harmonised and should be equally done to avoid false positives and false negatives.
As of yet the experimental approach has been adopted and not recommended by the European Public Health Agency the diseases prevention and control authority in looking at relevant case reports.
Most of the studies conducted around the world during the last year show such findings such as Guinea jumping into humans between 2012 and 2016 leading to nine cases.
There followed six cowpox cases from 2012 onward two humans between 2014 and 2017 three serespuridosis cases in a cow which were both examined between December 2015 and May 2016 and one infection in a human in December 2019.
Scientists mainly used laboratory models such as rats and mice but did not use other species or humans.
The results of the US study with people were quite interesting. People who travelled to the country experienced severe paranoia and tics including aggression and rubbery body structure.
WHO also reports that it wants to analyse our nations research in terms of all types of emerging epidemics that can affect Europeans. This is the goal says ECDC doctor Karl Magnus Petersdorff.
This is especially high on the continent of Europe because the study will also be done in western countries that are also subject to new dengue strains.
