Is there a common age group by which dengue fever is common?
Is it much common to minor ages/pediatrics?
if it is, is it relevant?
Thank you so much. GodblessÜ

  • Dendue fever is transmitted by mosquitoes so babies might get it more if they are not protected from mosquitoe as babies are not likely to swat them.The more bites you get the greater your chances of getting the disease.Babies born to mothers with Dendue have a greater chance of getting a serious form of Dengue and are not born protected as they are with some other diseases.
