Huang, Xiaodong Huang; Williams, Gail; Hu, Wenbiao; Clements, Archie

Description

Background: Dengue fever (DF) outbreaks often arise from imported DF cases in Cairns, Australia. Few studies have incorporated imported DF cases in the estimation of the relationship between weather variability and incidence of autochthonous DF.
