Three in ten Brazilians say they have had dengue, says survey

A survey carried out with 2,000 people showed that three in ten Brazilians say they have already been affected by dengue — 69% of survey participants say they know someone who has already had the disease. Among people who have already had dengue, 69% were diagnosed once, 23% twice and 6% three times or more.

The data comes from a survey carried out by Ipsos, at the request of the biopharmaceutical company Takeda and with the scientific coordination of the Brazilian Society of Infectious Diseases (SBI).

According to data from the Ministry of Health, there are more than 1.6 million registered cases of dengue in Brazil and a thousand deaths in 2023, surpassing the cases in 2022 (around 1.4 million) and almost reaching the same level of deaths (1,016 ).
