CALASIAO 2010 Anti-Dengue Fever Activities

  1. 1. DENGUE FEVER<br />Dengue Fever is a viral disease characterized by sudden onset of fever of 38 C and above, lasting for 5 days or more. This is accompanied by muscle or joint pains, appearance of petecchiae of the arms, body, feet and legs, positive tourniquet test and/or thrombocytopenia or low platelet count of less than 100,000/cu.mm. <br /> <br /> The most important way to prevent and control Dengue Fever is to eliminate favorable sites of the Aedes mosquitoes. This can be done by maintaining cleanliness of the surroundings and discarding containers that collect water suitable for breeding. Fumigation and/or use of larvicides may be necessary to reduce mosquito density in the community. Continuing health education on the prevention, control and management of Dengue Fever, is as important as the other activities. <br />
