Beware of dangers based on Aedes which causes DHF

Monsoon has fallen into Myanmar for one month. Rainwater fills various ponds, drains, lakes, creeks and rivers in the nation. Moreover, various parts of the ground are covered with rainwater as muddy and wet areas.
The areas filled with clean water are the best for Aedes mosquitoes which bears dengue viruses to be transmitted from person to person. Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever is a mosquito-borne disease caused by any one of four closely related dengue viruses. Such viruses can be identified as DENV-1, -2, -3 and -4. Infection with one serotype of DENV provides immunity to that serotype for life but provides no long-term immunity to other serotypes.

Hence, all the entire people should collectively participate in anti-DHF campaigns across the nation of their own accord as part of looking after their offspring to be free from epidemics including Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever.

The patients, especially children under 15, may face warning signs of DHF as severe abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, marked change in temperature from fever to hypothermia, hemorrhagic manifestations, or change in mental status. The patient also may have early signs of shock, including restlessness, cold clammy skin, rapid weak pulse, and narrowing of the pulse pressure. Patients with dengue fever should be told to return to the hospital if they can see themselves these signs.
DHF is currently defined by the following four World Health Organization (WHO) criteria: fever or recent history of fever lasting 2-7 days, any hemorrhagic manifestation, thrombocytopenia (platelet count of <100,000/mm3), and evidence of increased vascular permeability.
In Myanmar society, the Ministry of Health and Sports, as well as medical doctors from various hospitals and clinics, advise on raising health awareness for the people to broaden their horizon how to take preventive measures of DHF in the environs, what symptoms of DHF and how to take medical treatment for the DHF patients.
As a saying goes: Prevention is better than cure, public participation is of great importance in taking preventive measures against the infectious DHF by carrying out sanitation and cleaning of the environment around the residences in the society. All the water containers need to be covered with not for mosquitos to enter. It is because clean water is the best habitat for the Aedes mosquito.
Hence, all the entire people should collectively participate in anti-DHF campaigns across the nation of their own accord as part of looking after their offspring to be free from epidemics including Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever.
