For 2020, 26 EU/EEA countries reported 1 957 cases of dengue, of which 1 820 (93%) were confirmed. From 2016 to 2020, no obvious trend in the number of cases could be identified.

The EU/EEA notification rate in 2020 was 0.5 cases per 100 000 population. The highest rates in both men and women were among those aged 25–44 years. The number of cases peaked in January and in August. 79% of the cases with known probable country of infection were imported from the Americas, mostly from Martinique and Guadeloupe. Twenty-four autochthonous dengue cases were reported from the EU/EEA: 13 by France and 11 by Italy.
