Health officials say a 50-year-old Miami-Dade County woman is the state's first case of locally acquired dengue fever so far this year.
The Florida Department of Health's administrator in Miami-Dade County said Wednesday that the woman has fully recovered.
The dengue fever virus is transmitted by mosquitoes. Its symptoms include high fevers and severe muscle and joint pain. There's no specific medication or vaccine.
Dengue fever is widespread in other parts of the world, but local officials hope to contain it whenever it appears in the U.S.
