 en The rising importance of Triatoma rubrofasciata check for this species in other resources
Dujardin, Jean-Pierre; Lam, Truong Xuan; Khoa, Pham Thi & Schofield, Christopher John

Abstract

The migration of invasive vector species has contributed to the worldwide extension of infectious diseases such as dengue ( Aedes aegypti check for this species in other resources ) and chikungunya ( Aedes albopictus check for this species in other resources ). It is probably a similar behaviour for certain vectors of Chagas disease which allowed it to become a continental burden in Latin America. One of them, Triatoma rubrofasciata check for this species in other resources has also been spreading throughout the tropical and subtropical world. Here, the recent and massive peridomestic presence of T. rubrofasciata in Vietnam cities is reported, and tentatively explained, highlighting the need for improved entomological surveillance.
