It was discovered in Croatia, Bulgaria, and Montenegro.


Moreover, it was also noticed in many other European countries such as Italy, Greece, Turkey, Germany, Russia, and the Netherlands.


Even though the books say that it hat been on our shores for many years, it was never officially recorded on Serbian territory.


Epidemiologist Branislav Tiodorović said for Telegraf news agency that he does not expect the showing of this mosquito in our country, but that present climactic changes can disturb the situation.

- Climactic changes can create the favorable conditions for them to migrate from the central and the Mediterranean part of Africa to here. Over the last couple of years it was noticed in Greece, Turkey, and the Croats had one case of the Deng fever but that woman came from Spain - said Tiodorović.


Up to now this virus was a smaller threat to the South European countries because it is very rare in countries like Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, and Greece.


But now, it is believed that the Asian tiger mosquito is a new threat for Europe.
