From the end of 2016, an increasing number of Pacific Island Countries and Territories have reported DENV-2 outbreaks and in February 2017, DENV-2 infection was detected in French Polynesia in three travellers from Vanuatu. As DENV-2 has not been circulating in French Polynesia since December 2000, there is high risk for an outbreak to occur.}, author = {Aubry, M. and Teissier, Y. and Mapotoeke, M. and Teissier, A. and Giard, M. and Musso, D. and Cao-Lormeau, V.
