Dengue infections have increased dramatically in 11 Indian states in the past 1 and a half month, including Kerala, Telangana, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, and Odisha. According to official data, DENV-2, or strain D2, is the current dengue virus serotype in circulation, which is not only fueling a severity in cases but also leading to more casualties. If a person has previously been infected with one serotype, a second infection with a different serotype increases the risk of dengue hemorrhagic fever.
