Aedes aegypti is a vector for yellow fever virus, dengue virus and chikungunya virus.

In brief: Yes
There has been an enormous increase in the incidence of dengue over the last 40 years, probably due to a combination of urbanization, population growth, increased international travel, global warming, and a decrease in mosquito control programs.
