Myth about Dengue! Part3

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.

3:- Misguiding the nation and many less-educated people with irresponsible media campaign – If dengue doesn’t spread by specific breed of mosquito then what is aedes aegypti?

I got amazed when I read news reports like this (below given) from very senior medical officials. I don’t know why this is happening but what else I know is that citizens of Pakistan are receiving double meaning statements (might be caused by poor reporting) which is not helping them understand what dengue virus is and how it spreads. Do read below news article especially 4th last line to onward.

Where most of the government officials are portraying that dengue virus spreads when aegypti mosquito from aedes genus bites an infected person and transmits the virus to others with next bite. There are also three other mosquito breeds from aedes genus those can spread this virus but never named before. Aedes Albopictus is the other breed which has been identified by World Health Organization Pakistan as a vector who spread this virus. And some of the very senior medical executives saying that there is no specific mosquito who spreads dengue virus.

I just like to mention here an old quote which is very true in case of dengue fever.

Prevention is the best CURE.

To Your Health & Safety,
