Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne tropical disease transmitted by mosquitoes. According to the statistics by the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme, India has recorded over 33, 964 cases of dengue in 2017 so far.

The disease returns to affect an estimated 390 million dengue infections worldwide each year, with about 96 million resulting in illness. If you feel you’re showing any signs of dengue, you should visit a doctor right away.


High Fever

Usually, children experience the common cold, vomiting or diarrhea.


Patients tend to gain extreme headaches, slight joint and muscle pain, as well as pain behind the eyes.

Other Signs

These may include bleeding in the gums or nose, along with a skin rash which may show up to 5 days after the start of the fever.


Use Mosquito Repellents

The dengue mosquito prefers to stay inside as that helps it stay away from climate changes.

Full Coverage

When outdoors, try to wear long pants and full sleeved shirts.

Prevent Water Stagnation 

Immediately dispose of places where mosquitos can breed, for example, flower pots that collect rain.

Is there no end?

Most dengue diseases have been known to be diagnosed from tropical areas, such as the Indian subcontinent, Taiwan and the Caribbean.

The disease has no specific treatment or vaccine whatsoever. However, there are ongoing efforts to produce drugs that may be used to treat the fever in the future.
