Dengue fever is a viral infection spread by mosquitos that causes severe flu-like disease, and in rare cases, a potentially deadly complication known as severe dengue. In the world dengue vector-borne viral disease has widely spread everywhere, posing a serious threat to public health. Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne disease spread by Aedes mosquitoes, particularly Aedes Aegypti and Aedes albopictus (CDC, 2019), and is the most frequent arboviral illness in humans, impacting Asia and Latin America disproportionately ( Bhatt et al., 2013).
