New Delhi: Dengue outbreak continues in many subdivisions across the country. In Uttar Pradesh alone, many deaths have taken place in the last month. Most of the dead are children. In addition to Mathura and Firozabad, dengue cases are being registered continuously from Kanpur, Prayagraj and Ghaziabad. The question arises as to why children are getting the most infected and how they can be protected from this infection.
Experts say that dengue is a disease that can happen to anyone. But this time it is infecting the children more. The reason is that children's immune system is weaker than adults. Children suffer from respiratory infections six to eight times a year. On the other hand, a large number of children are coming out after the lockdown is opened and consuming contaminated food and dirty water outside. That is why they also have the highest risk of infection. Water accumulates at many places after the monsoon. Diseases like dengue, chikungunya, malaria spread rapidly. To avoid this, do not allow water to accumulate at home and change it daily wherever water accumulates. Tell you that dengue and chikungunya are caused by the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito. This mosquito is born in clean water. On the other hand, Anopheles mosquitoes cause malaria to spread, which is capable of breeding in both dirty and clean water.
If someone is having a high fever as well as pain in the body. If symptoms such as abdominal pain are also visible, it is prone to dengue or other mosquito-borne diseases. In addition, the symptoms include loss of appetite, rashes on the body. Doctors say one should drink more water if one has symptoms of dengue. Lack of water in the body can add to the difficulties. However, if someone is showing more symptoms, should contact the doctor immediately.
