Dengue is a viral disease caused by the bite of an infected female Aedes mosquito. Now it has become a great threat to our country. People are suffering much from this disease. The main reason for dengue fever is the bite of a mosquito that carries away dengue germ. When a man suffers from dengue and mosquito bites him, it carries away some of the germs of the disease. If this mosquito then bites a healthy man, the germ may get into his blood and he gets dengue. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in the standing water. Usually in the rainy season, in empty cans, in flower vessels and other abandoned pots contain water. This is mainly responsible for mosquito havoc. The affected man suffers from a high headache, vomiting, muscle and joint pains, skin rash along with severe fever. Dengue fever can lead a man to death if it is not treated in time. There is no vaccine for dengue infection. The people who get affected by this disease have to drink a lot of water and eat Vitamin C riched foods. Only public awareness can solve this problem. Regular cleanliness is the main way to destroy the abode of mosquitos. Our government has already taken the necessary steps in this regard. We also should keep our surroundings clean and make sure that there is no standing water around us where mosquitoes can lay their eggs. If everybody in our country takes part in the fight against mosquitoes, all may soon get rid of dengue.
