|Condition or disease|
Blood samples will be obtained from consented subjects as part of a hospital-based multi-site study conducted in Nepal and will be shipped to Karius, Redwood City, CA.
The investigators will test whether the Karius test can detect Dengue Virus in plasma from those suspected cases and measure the performance of the Karius test against standard tests (PCR, ELISA test and neutralization assays) used to determine a final diagnosis of Dengue Fever.
