Dengue Fever

What is Dengue Fever?

Dengue fever is an infectious tropical disease caused by the dengue virus transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. It can progress to more a deadly form of the disease known as dengue haemorrhagic fever and cause death.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that 50-100 million people are infected by dengue fever globally every year and around 3 out of every 100 dengue infections are fatal.

Dengue Symptoms

  • Sudden onset of continuous high fever

  • Red rashes on skin

  • Acute pain at the bones, muscles, joints, eye-balls and head

  • Loss of appetite

  • Vomiting and nausea

  • Bleeding from nose, gums and skin

Dengue Treatment

Vaccine tests are still carried out and there is no specific treatment for dengue, but appropriate medical care frequently saves the lives of patients with the more serious dengue haemorrhagic fever. See a doctor immediately for diagnosis and treatment if you experience symptoms of dengue fever.
