Fear of Dengue looms large in China, as Mosquitoes Make Most of Sunshine!

China is susceptible to an outbreak of dengue, also known as bone-breaker's disease, with the average temperature of 28 degrees being conducive for the mosquitoes to breed. China's Health Ministry has alerted the public about dengue fever, which is a lethal mosquito borne disease that could turn fatal as some strains can spark off internal bleeding and death.

The ministry's spokesman said "Health departments at all levels must closely monitor the dengue fever outbreaks and strengthen detection to make sure that all prevention measures are properly carried out."

The need of the hour is a concerted effort by the people of China in ensuring that the environment is devoid of filth, which is the thriving ground for these agents of doom. Symptoms of dengue include severe fever, or vomiting, nausea and body rash. Dengue could also cause severe pain in the joints.
