The Infected 1) Children from  1-­10years  old.

Prevalence of  dengue  among  women  have  of   ten  been  higher  throughout  the  different  age     groups,  except  for  the  age  1-­‐10  brackets.  

Fatality rates 1) Age  Group a. Children  in  age  group  bracket  1-­‐10   years  old  have  the  most  number  of   deaths.  Often  times,  because  of  lack  of   medical  health  care
