Since mosquitoes are the only carrier of the disease, we can completely destroy the aedes if we can destroy thri breeding system near our house or office. So the best way to prevent dengue is to destroy the Aedes mosquito breed. Therefore, such open reservoirs of the settlements need to be clean. Clean Refrigerator or AC water for two consecutive days. If there is an open tub on the porch, terrace or cornice of the home, clean them as well. The city corporation has the responsibility of making the capital clean and free of mosquitoes, but as citizens we have also the same responsibility.

7 Warning Signs of Dengue Fever
If you have a fever
Now let’s know how to be aware if sudden fever happened. At this time, if anyone has a fever at home, go to doctor on the first day of fever. Whatever the level of fever, do not rule out the possibility of dengue. Don’t bother with signs. Symptoms do not always come from fever. In addition to the symptoms of high levels of fever, nausea, headache, rash, dengue can occur.
If the fever is few days then dengue antigen will not be positive. Therefore, the CBC (Complete Blood Count) and Dengue NS1 tests were given at the beginning. Dengue NS1 antigen is generally positive from day 1 to day 3 of fever. However, despite having dengue in 30 to 35 percent of the cases, the test report can be negative. In that case, the observation of the doctor must be given importance If there is no blood test in the first few days, there is still a diagnosis. Physicians can visualize symptoms of disease, CBC reports and antibodies. So if you are late but seek medical help.
Only if the doctor advises
You need to admit to the hospital only if dengue fever is detected, this is not like that. Go to the primary health care center or your regular physician at the beginning. Only if the doctor advises you to go to the hospital then you can go. Other complications with fever, such as heart disease, pregnancy, thin closet, excess vomiting – if these, blood pressure is lower than normal, they usually admit to hospital.
Drink plenty of liquids
Drink lots of fluids at home from the onset of fever. Drink 2 to 3 litters water per day. Liquid means white water, saline, dab water, fruit juice, lemonade, etc. Keep an eye on whether the urine going on sufficient. Put dengue patient at home in mosquito nets. This will save others in the family.
Do not make panic by the countless platelets repeatedly. If the platelet count is less, do not ask doctor to many times to give the platelet to the doctor. In rare cases, platelet transfusions are rarely given. Similarly, starting the saline in the vein when it is dengue, which is also wrong. Many of us force doctor to give saline to the doctors which in not correct. Help the doctor to make decisions without being overwhelmed. Don’t make panic by what has been said to you. Over-treatment or over-exertion can pose a danger. Be careful and aware.
