Mosquito Borne Diseases

The most common mosquito borne diseases in Queensland are Ross River Virus, Barmah Forest Virus and Dengue. While some mosquito borne diseases are locally acquired in Queensland, others are imported to Queensland when people acquire the disease travelling overseas and return unwell.

The other notifiable mosquito borne disease in Queensland that residents should be aware of (particularly pregnant women) is the Zika virus.
