The Paris 2024 Olympic Games are just around the corner, and it’s shaping up to be an incredible event. With athletes and fans from all over the world coming together, there’s a lot to look forward to. But did you know that experts are a bit concerned about Dengue fever making an appearance during the games?

Dengue Fever and Paris 

Dengue  fever is a mosquito-borne illness that’s been spreading to new areas, including Europe. Paris in the summer is perfect for mosquitoes to thrive, and with an increase in international visitors, it’s possible that Dengue could hitch a ride.  

The Paris 2024 Olympics could become a dengue fever 'super-spreader event', with experts warning of the mosquito-borne virus already present in the city. Last year saw dengue cases in Paris, and with over 15 million visitors expected, the risk of rapid spread is high. Climate change has made Europe more hospitable to dengue-carrying mosquitoes, heightening concerns for the Games.

If you’re travelling to Paris for the Olympics it can’t hurt to know the symptoms of Dengue fever before you leave. Symptoms usually begin 4-10 days after the mosquito bite and include sudden high fever, severe headaches, pain behind the eyes, joint and muscle pain, rash, and mild bleeding (e.g., nose or gum bleed, easy bruising). Severe dengue, also known as dengue haemorrhagic fever, can cause plasma leaking, fluid accumulation, respiratory distress, severe bleeding, or organ impairment.
