Dengue
Posted On: 01-Sep-2015

Another year has passed by and we still have no cure for dengue, the viral infection that is spread to humans by the Aedes Aegypti mosquito. It is of four distinct types--DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3 and DEN-4, and was previously known as the 'break-bone fever' because it causes relentless joint pain that can become severe enough for patients to feel their bones are breaking; Today, simply called dengue, it affects everyone, with children and teenagers being at greater risk, because they do not understand or pay heed to the risk of being in an unhealthy surrounding while playing or eating.


According to the World Health Organisation, dengue fever can be fatal, as it may be accompanied by plasma leaking, fluid accumulation, respiratory distress, severe bleeding and organ impairment. And what is worrisome is that while all age groups and sexes are affected, "Deaths are more in children during Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever outbreak," according to http://nvbdcp.gov.in/, the official website of the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme, under the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.
