Abundance and Updated Distribution of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) in Cabo Verde Archipelago: A Neglected Threat to Public Health

Abstract: Background: Mosquito-borne viruses, such as Zika, dengue, yellow fever, and chikungunya, are important causes of human diseases nearly worldwide. The greatest health risk for arboviral disease outbreaks is the presence of the most competent and highly invasive domestic mosquito, Aedes aegypti. In Cabo Verde, two recent arbovirus outbreaks were reported, a dengue outbreak in 2009, followed by a Zika outbreak in 2015. This study is the first entomological survey for Ae. aegypti that includes all islands of Cabo … Show more

“…The high number of Ae . aegypti caught from a geographically wide range of sites in different ecological zones may be explained by the behaviour of this species, which is highly anthropophilic and associated with human habitations, as reported by many studies undertaken in Central Africa and West Africa [ 64 , 68 , 70 ]. The high abundance of Ae .…”

“…Thirty studies (69.8% [30/43]) relied exclusively on external data sources [20, 22- [18,19,[21][22][23]26,28,31,43,44 (GT); 50,58 (GM)]. The majority of MTs originated before 2010 (52.3% [23/44]) [61][62][63][64][65][67][68][69]71,75,76,79,81,82,84,87,88,89,[91][92][93]95,100,104] while the time of origination was not clear in other MTs.…”

“…Eight inclusions (18.2% [8/44]) [66,78,86,90,96,[100][101][102] mentioned thresholds that originated from the same program. One inclusion (2.3% [1/44]) [75] mentioned a threshold with a different country origin while four inclusions (9% [4/44]) [69,88,92,94] mentioned thresholds from different continental regions. Only one inclusion (2.3% [1/44]) [81] mentioned different thresholds either with the same country origin or different country origin and one inclusion (2.3% [1/44]) [98] did not cite a cross-reference or mention the origin of the mentioned threshold.…”
