In 2018, an individual who worked in a laboratory in North Carolina contracted the dengue virus while working with the virus.
The investigation revealed that the presence of an open finger wound during work with high-titer DENV coupled with improper glove doffing suggests that laboratory-acquired infection by cutaneous exposure was the most likely route of DENV infection in this case. However, other routes of exposure, including mucosal, could not be ruled out.
I read a short primer of dengue fever and take a look at this paper.
