ABSTRACT
This article offers advice on preventing dengue fever. Dengue is a virus transmitted by the daytime-feeding Aedes aegypti mosquito. It is very widespread across Southeast Asia, much of Africa, Central America and the northern parts of South America. There are four types of dengue and all are appearing similar to those infected. About one week after infection, fever may appear, subside and reappear again. There is no vaccine available, nor specific treatment for dengue fever and supportive measures are the only answer for dengue hemorrhagic fever.
