    Hawaii State Department of Health said another four people were diagnosed with dengue fever on Hawaii's Big Island, bringing the total number of cases in the state to 19. The outbreak likely started in September on the Big Island and has not been confined to one specific area. This is causing some concern as most previous cases of dengue were imported to the islands from overseas via infected foreign travelers.

    dengue fever symptoms

    Dengue virus is spread through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, and it's not spread from one person to another. Symptoms include a sudden fever; severe headaches; eye, joint and muscle pain; and rash on the hands, arms, legs and feet three to four days after the fever begins. Symptoms usually subside completely within one to two weeks.
