TRIANA-VIDAL, Luz Elena et al. Analysis of the spatial and temporal distribution of the Dengue virus (2006- 2017), Zika (2015-2017) and Chikungunya (2014-2017) in Colombia. Infect. [online]. 2019, vol.23, n.4, pp.352-356. ISSN 0123-9392.


to describe the spatial and temporal distribution of dengue, zika and Chikungunya viruses in Colombia and to identify clusters at spatial, temporal and space-temporal levels.


A descriptive study was developed about the space and time distribution of the Dengue virus (2006-2017), Zika (2015-2017) and Chikungunya (2014-2017) in Colombia, using principles of spatial statistics, namely the spatial data exploratory analysis.


Areas of Colombia were identified where there is a higher density and prevalence of cases and were analyzed 1124 municipalities for each event (cases of Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya). Significant clusters (P<0.05) were proven in spatial, temporal and space-temporal analysis, in the south-western zone of the Andean region and in the Orinoquia region.


Two conglomerates were confirmed for the Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya events, that could be established as areas of higher risk of co-infection.

Keywords : Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya; analysis by conglomerates; risk áreas.
