The non-structural protein NS1 of the dengue virus is se- creted into the bloodstream during the acute stage of Den- gue infection (0-7 days).
As there is no specific treatment for Dengue, early detec- tion is critical as it allows monitoring health and accessing medical services, lowering the chances of progressing to se- vere Dengue.
People infected with Dengue can have symptoms that range from mild and asymptomatic (about 80%) to severe flu-like symptoms that can lead to death.
