Increased local transmission of dengue virus in the US: Epidemiological considerations for blood safety and the role of pathogen reduction

Recent outbreaks of mosquito-borne diseases in the United States have underscored the increased risk arboviral and other emerging pathogens may pose to the blood supply. Dr. John Pitman presents an analysis of health department data on local and imported cases of dengue virus and malaria in Florida, and discuss how population-level increases in vector-borne diseases may threaten local blood donor pools and the role pathogen reduction may play to mitigate these risks.
