In 2019, dengue was among the “top-ten threats to global health,” with 3.1 million cases reported from the Americas, the highest ever. Simultaneously, Jamaica reported its largest dengue outbreak in 40 years, following Chikungunya and Zika virus epidemics, in 2014 and 2016–2017, respectively. We describe dengue in children admitted to five hospitals in Jamaica during August 2018 through September 2019.
