Dengue Fever Cases Show Up in Florida
According to the State Department of Health, three adults have been confirmed to have dengue fever, a mosquito-born illness.
Health officials say the illness likely came to the United States from Americans who were bitten by dengue-infected mosquitoes while traveling internationally.
The most common symptoms include high fever, severe headache, joint and bone pain, and rash.
Younger people who become infected might not have many symptoms, but the elderly or those with other health issues may become seriously sick.
