Detection Prevention of Dengue Malaria
  • Even in this day and age of technology and
    medical advancements, Dengue and Malaria still
    remain one of the highest causative agents of
    death around the world. Despite their latent
    malicious nature, many people remain unaware of
    the far-reaching consequences of these diseases,
    resulting in such high numbers of deaths from
    malaria and dengue worldwide. Despite being so
    harmful, these diseases absolutely need a vector
    to spread through, namely mosquitoes, where they
    can mature.

Prevention of Dengue and Malaria
  • We can prevent diseases like Dengue and Malaria
    by keeping our surroundings mosquito free, as
    these diseases can only spread when we are stung
    by these pests. Follow these steps to keep them
    away
  • Screen your windows Ensure that all entry
    points to the home, like windows, vents, etc have
    fine mesh screening on them. This way you can
    keep the mosquitoes out, without suffocating
    yourself.
  • Protective Clothing When youre going outside,
    and especially to a mosquito infested area, then
    opt for wearing full sleeves and jeans. Stick to
    lighter colours, as studies have shown that
    mosquitoes are attracted to darker colours.

  • Mosquito Repellent There are all kinds of
    mosquito repellents that you can use to keep them
    away. Applying repellent creams on exposed parts
    of your skin when you go out, switching on the
    repellent device in your home, etc are definitely
    effective when it comes to repelling mosquitoes.
  • Reduce mosquito habitat All kinds of stagnant
    water are breeding grounds for these mosquitoes.
    You should take care that there arent any open
    and stagnant puddles of water in your bathroom,
    garden, or anywhere near your house. Get regular
    spraying done in your house and its immediate
    outdoors, to ensure total elimination of all
    mosquitoes and their eggs.

Detection of Malaria
  • In countries like the US, where malaria is not an
    endemic disease, detection and diagnosis is much
    harder, because it is so unexpected. However, in
    tropical countries like India, malaria is more
    common and affects most of the population. The
    symptoms of malarial fever that we should watch
    out for are
  • Muscular Pain and Headache
  • Recurring Fever, accompanied with alternate bouts
    of chills and sweats
  • Nausea and Vomitting
  • Weakness and Fatigue
  • Dry Cough

  • People suffering from these symptoms should be
    taken immediately for a blood test, to find out
    if they are infected with the malarial virus or
    not.

Detection of Dengue
  • Look out for the following symptoms if you
    suspect that you might be suffering from dengue
    fever
  • Sudden high temperature
  • Severe headaches, especially behind the eyes
  • High muscle and joint pain
  • Nausea and Vomitting
  • Skin Rash
  • If you have most of these symptoms, then the next
    step is to consult a medical expert, who will
    most likely prescribe a blood test to detect the
    dengue virus.
