What is Dengue Fever?

Dengue fever, a serious mosquito-borne disease, is caused by the dengue virus with four circulating serotypes (DENV1-4) in Singapore and globally. This means you can be infected up to four times throughout your life.

Be aware of the potential severity:
  • First-time infections can be serious, especially for elderly individuals and those with pre-existing medical conditions.

  • Repeat infections increase the risk of severe dengue, which includes potentially fatal complications like dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome.​


Dengue fever symptoms typically appear 4 - 7 days after a mosquito bite ranging from 3 - 14 days and can include:

  • Sudden high fever (2 - 7 days)

  • Severe headache, especially behind the eyes

  • Joint and muscle pain

  • Skin rashes

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Mild bleeding (nosebleeds, gum bleeds, easy bruising)
