The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued a travel notice for travelers to the Mediterranean region, in particular to France and Spain due to autochthonous dengue fever reported in these two countries.

In September 2019, public health officials reported a case of locally acquired dengue in Barcelonès County, Spain, near Barcelona. In addition, six locally acquired cases of the disease were reported in France: five in the city of Vallauris, near Cannes, and one in Caluire-et-Cuire, near Lyon. None of the people infected had traveled outside their home countries (Spain or France).
