Paper on global spread of dengue virus types
Global spread of dengue virus types: mapping the 70-year history published in Trends in Biology by JP Messina et al maps the global distribution and co-circulation of each DENV type from 1943 to 2013. Previously the geography of type-specific global DENV circulation has not been well described. Detection of all types has expanded worldwide together with growing hyperendemicity and there remains a dearth of type-specific information in many parts of the world.
