July 6, 2015


Dengue is one of the infectious diseases which is endemic in the tropical and sub-tropical country. The disease found in Indonesia Surabaya, 1968. The symptoms of Dengue virus infections are two kinds, first DF (Dengue Fever), second DHF (Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever). This infectious disease transmitted by Aedes aegypti mosquito.
