On one hand people are not able to emerge from the havoc of Corona and here on the other hand Dengue has wreaked havoc in many states of the country. Especially in Delhi, Noida and Gurgaon, the number of dengue patients is increasing rapidly. Dengue fever is spread through the bite of an Aedes mosquito infected with the dengue virus. This mosquito becomes infected when it sucks the blood of a person infected with dengue virus. It does not spread directly from one person to another. Dengue infection is spread by the DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN-4 viruses. These four viruses are called serotypes because they affect antibodies in different ways. You can be infected with dengue up to four times from different strains.
Mosquitoes that spread dengue bite most of the time in the afternoon. Especially two hours after sunrise and one hour before sunset. However, dengue mosquitoes remain active even at night, especially in areas with good lighting. The risk of dengue mosquito bites is higher inside offices, malls, indoor auditoriums and stadiums because artificial lights are used all the time and natural light does not come.
Symptoms of Dengue- Symptoms of dengue usually start appearing four to six days after infection and last up to 10 days. These symptoms include sudden, high fever, very severe headache, pain behind the eyes, severe joint and muscle pain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, skin rash and mild bleeding such as bleeding from the nose or gums. Dengue fever causes severe pain all over the body, so some people also call it break bone fever. Sometimes its symptoms are mild and people mistake it for flu or other viral infection.

Treatment of dengue – There is no definite medicine to treat dengue. A lot of rest should be taken in dengue fever. Get the platelets in the blood checked regularly. Do not let there be any shortage of water in the body and take plenty of liquid diet. It is best to drink coconut water at this time. It also works to increase platelets. Apart from this, include Giloy, papaya, kiwi, pomegranate, beetroot and green vegetables in the diet. Keep in touch with the doctor and keep informing him about your platelets. The doctor may also advise you to be admitted to the hospital in case of any kind of problem or platelets fall.
Protect it like this Dengue is a disease spread by mosquitoes and it is very important to prevent it. Dengue mosquito often bites during the day. So protect yourself from mosquito bites during the day. These days, wear full-sleeved clothes and shoes on your feet. Do not leave the body open from anywhere. Do not allow water to freeze around the house or inside the house. Also drain the water frozen in coolers, pots, tires. If there is water in the cooler, empty it too, otherwise mosquitoes can breed in it. Applying a mosquito net while sleeping at night is the best way of protection.
