Suspected Case of Dengue Fever in Miami Beach Comes Back Negative
"The Miami-Dade County Health Department has received the result of the first confirmatory testing of the suspected case of locally acquired dengue infection case in the County. Test results were negative."
The disease, characterized by fever, pain and gastrointestinal problems, can only be transmitted through mosquitoes. Even though this case came back negative, it has been confirmed in the Keys, so it's probably a good idea to take precautions against getting bit by the unofficial Florida state bird.
