Dengue cases are on the rise in many parts of the country. When infected with dengue, the numbers of platelets begin to decrease. So if you have a fever this season, you must get your dengue test checked. In addition to fever, dengue also causes headaches, muscles and joint pain. In addition, symptoms such as pain in the back of the eyes, weakness, loss of appetite, sore throat, the bad taste in the mouth and rashes may also appear on the body. To avoid this, it is important to know how it happens.
Dengue is generally spread by the bite of the female Aedes aegypti mosquito. These are special types of mosquitoes with leopard-like stripes on their bodies. These mosquitoes bite, especially in the morning. A person who suffers from dengue has a large amount of dengue virus in his body. In addition, when an Aedes mosquito bites a dengue patient, it also sucks its blood. Then, when this mosquito bites a healthy person, he also gets dengue. Because the mosquito bite also causes infection in his body. This also infects the person with dengue.
What is dengue, how does it spread and how can it be avoided?
However, dengue does not occur through shaking hands with a dengue patient, sitting with him or drops coming out of his mouth or nose. However, because dengue spreads infection from person to person in another way, it is considered an infectious disease. In addition, dengue fever is caused by four types of viruses transmitted by mosquitoes. All these viruses are transmitted through Aedes aegypti or Aedes albopictus mosquito species.
