Wage war against dengue!

Dengue – a now-common diagnosis that one fears to hear from the doctor. With some cases leading to death, dengue can strike practically anyone – young, old, male, or female – just from a single mosquito bite.

In a tropical country like the Philippines, there is just no escaping mosquitoes as a fact of life. Following last year's La Niña season, mosquitoes have been breeding non-stop and dengue has become a year-long communicable disease.

 

Dengue – a now-common diagnosis that one fears to hear from the doctor. With some cases leading to death, dengue can strike practically anyone – young, old, male, or female – just from a single mosquito bite.

In a tropical country like the Philippines, there is just no escaping mosquitoes as a fact of life. Following last year's La Niña season, mosquitoes have been breeding non-stop and dengue has become a year-long communicable disease. According to dengue surveillance data from the Department of Health, there were already 115 deaths from about 19,000 cases of dengue in DoH sentinel hospitals from January to April 9. And with the impending rains, dengue cases are expected to rise significantly.

Know more about the dengue carrier

The species of mosquito responsible for the dreaded dengue is called Aedes aegypti, which usually lays its eggs in fresh water. It likes to breed close to humans because we are its primary food. It is said that they usually come out in the early morning and late afternoon and bite from below or behind the feet and ankle where they cannot be easily noticed. That is why children are advised to wear long pants during the rainy season when dengue is on the rise.

What separates the Aedes aegypti from other mosquito species is the distinguishing marks of white spots over its all black body and the white rings on its legs. These marks may not be seen by the naked eye. And because the Aedes aegypti is a swift flier, it's not easily swatted by newspaper or bare hands. This is where an efficient insect killer comes in handy.
