What type of mosquito is the carrier of dengue fever?

Dengue fever also known as breakbone fever, is an infectious tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. Dengue is transmitted by the mosquito, Aedes aegypti, which acts as the vector in transmitting the dengue virus.

What is the agent that causes Dengue Fever?

The causative agent of Dengue Fever (also known as the Devil's Crunch or Breakbone Fever) is the Dengue Fever Virus (DENV), a member of the Flaviviridae family and the Flavivirusspecies. However, there are four serotypes of the Dengue fever virus, aptly named DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3 and DENV-4 and within these serotypes there are clades and strains that are inherently different in nature. However, as a conclusion, one would say the DENV virus is the agent of Dengue Fever.
