dengue & malaria cases are high in India now. Dengue and malaria mosquitoes are born in stagnant water. The best way to prevent dengue is to avoid mosquito bites. If we wear a full sleeve to prevent dengue mosquito bites from clothing, mosquitoes will not bite. Mosquitoes usually produce larvae in clean water. Stored water should be cleaned at least once a week to prevent mosquito breeding. Spraying kills the larvae.
In the current situation, preventing dengue has difficult due to the spread of Covid-19. Dengue and covid 19 are not contagious at the same time. Malaysia is one of the countries where these two outbreaks co-occur. In the current situation, parents should be very vigilant and effectively aware of diseases.
Symptoms of both dengue and covid 19 are similar. The spread of these is very intense. Dr. Moosa said that co-infection has greatly increased the chances of miscarriage.
Dengue can be contracted by mosquito bites during the day in outdoor areas indoors where Aedes mosquitoes live. If a family member is bitten by a sibling mosquito at home, others are more likely to be infected. Hence it is very important to avoid mosquito bites indoors.
Mosquitoes are more attracted to dark-colored clothes. So it is very important to wear light-colored clothes. Using mosquito nets on beds can prevent mosquito bites.
Aedes mosquito bites cause fever. Dengue mosquitoes bite mostly during the day. It takes 5 to 7 days for the symptoms of dengue to appear after being infected by a mosquito bite. This is called the incubation period. Dengue fever occurs when the normal body temperature exceeds 105F degrees.
