dengue fever

Dengue fever, which is seen in tropical and subtropical regions, is transmitted to humans through mosquitoes. The disease, which generally causes mild fever after the incubation period, can cause death in some cases.

Cases increase in March, June, September and December, which are generally known as rainy seasons.

Scientists warn that high temperatures and prolonged rainfall are causing an increase in mosquitoes that carry malaria and dengue fever.

Since the mosquito species causing the disease forms larvae in the puddles, the possible breeding areas need to be sprayed constantly.
