The COVID-19 pandemic has created special challenges in countries that are highly endemic for dengue. In this Zoom webinar, our experts will highlight these challenges and bring you the latest, most up to date information. Current clinical findings, effectiveness of control measures including vector control strategies, as well as interactions between SARS-CoV-2 and dengue viruses will be examined. Our webinar will focus on Thailand and Brazil, two very popular travel destinations that are highly endemic for dengue, as these countries currently fight the spread of COVID-19.
