Prevention of Dengue mosquito bites ?
Dengue mosquitoes bite during daytime. Protect yourself from the bite.
Wear full-sleeve clothes or long dresses to cover the hands and legs.
Use mosquito coils and electric vapour mats during the day to prevent dengue.
Use mosquito nets to protect babies and old people and others who may rest during the day.
Make sure that water storage containers are covered to prevent breeding of mosquitoes.
You can also clean the house gutters to prevent stagnation of rainwater.
Patients suffering from dengue H-fever must be isolated for at least 5 days.
Please report to the nearest health centre if any suspected case of dengue H-fever is in the neighborhood.
Break the cycle of mosquito - human - mosquito infection. Mosquitoes become infected when they bite people who are sick with dengue. Mosquito nets and mosquito repellents effectively prevent more mosquitoes from biting sick people and help stop the spread of dengue.
