Dengue fever, Prevention and control


Dengue is a virus carried by mosquitoes, and it has recently expanded quickly in most Asia countries. The virus is spread mostly by female Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes among the Asian people. Due to high negligence among Asians, the virus was transmitted among everyone till late. Dengue fever is the most widespread arthropod-borne virus impacting humans today, corresponding to public health issues. Because of human negligence, the virus has spread widely to the present day. As a result, dengue fever cases keep increasing. Several reasons contribute to the spread of dengue fever among Asians, primarily their fear of the virus's repercussions. Additionally, increasing migration of people and environmental changes have accelerated the rate of viral propagation. This article discusses the causes, types of dengue fever, modes of transmission, risk factors, clinical symptoms, complications, diagnosis, incubation period, previous years' dengue fever statistics in a few Asian countries, treatments/vaccines, and preventions and controls associated with dengue virus that everyone should know to prevent and stop the virus transmission not only in Asia but all over the world are.
