Dengue Fever & It's Preventions

Dengue Fever  It's Preventions

Dengue, a major public health problem currently in Pakistan is a mosquito-borne illness characterized by biphasic fever, headache, pain in joints and muscles of the body, rash, and leucopenia. This contagion is spread from the mosquitos of the family Aedes Aegypti, and the dengue virus is transmitted through the bite of woman mosquitos. A small percentage of people who have dengue fever can develop a more serious form of the disease known as Dengue Hemorrhagic fever.

Dengue fever cases have accordingly enlarged over the once many months. The WHO and United State Centers for complaint control and Prevention have measured Dengue fever as the main health threat for Pakistan, Brazil, and India. It's necessary to dissect this virus to reduce dengue fever in the region.

The dengue virus is present throughout the time in specific areas of Pakistan. Karachi and Lahore are most significantly affected by cases in these two most vibrant metropolises.

Recent climate-grounded exploration and protrusions put Pakistan in the top 10 list of countries affected by climate change, and the researchers have linked both climate change and dengue fever.

Dengue fever is caused by any one of four types of dengue mosquitoes. You can not get dengue fever from being around an infected person. Rather, dengue fever is spread through mosquito mouthfuls.


Numerous people witness no signs or symptoms of dengue infection. Symptoms generally begin 4-10 days after one gets stunk by the infected mosquito, and substantially these symptoms are incorrect for other ails. Dengue fever causes a high fever — 104 F (40 C).

Severe Stomach Pain Blood in the Urine, droppings, and Heave. Fatigue Restlessness Bleeding under the skin, which might look like bruising.


1. The best method of protection is to avoid mosquito bites and to reduce the mosquito niche.

There are some areas where the population of mosquitoes can be reduced i.e.

FlowerPots Barrels Any Empty Vessel Empty the planters

2. Special Care should be taken and checked if they're voided and changed regularly.3. Use Mosquito repellent indoors and outside.4. Use Air- conditioning rather than opening windows.5. Use Mosquito Nets if sleeping areas are not screened.6. Wearing Protective Clothing.7. Bettered sanitation systems in the metropolis.

Preventive measures are needed that can be undertaken by the local governments these days to eradicate the breeding grounds for Aedes Aegypti larvae.
