Myth about Dengue! Part2

As-Salam-o-Alaikum Respected Subscribers & Readers,

A lot has been said by medical experts on prevention/precautions of dengue fever: and local, provincial and national government also launched very heavy campaigns to control havoc/panic created by dengue fever. First Aid to Save a Life Pakistan would like to discuss some of the myths while discussing precautions and medications relating to dengue fever.

2:- Misguiding the nation and many less-educated people with irresponsible media campaign – what are they distributing with name of prevention kits?

I don’t understand when I saw pictures likes this where CM is distributing dengue prevention kits. I heard lot of people asking about the contents of this prevention kit and were curious why these kits are not distributed in their areas as well. Many want to know from where they can get/purchase it as they thought it might be something special. They are less educated to understand the difference between curative and preventive kits.

I also don’t understand why not Dr. Saeed Illahi (Health Minister & Adviser to CM) is reviewing what has been posted and associated with CM or provincial government on subject on dengue and to correct if any sort of wrong message has been given.

Remember, there is no preventive medicines available for dengue as there are against Malaria. There are no curative kits available against dengue as these are available against Malaria. Kindly don’t confuse yourself with above picture.

To Your Health & Safety,
