Dengue prevention

While vaccination is not widely available, combating outbreaks of the transmitting mosquito, the Aedes aegypti, and individual precautions remain essential. Eliminate possible mosquito breeding sites that accumulate stagnant water. Furthermore, it is recommended to use repellents suitable for this mosquito.

The classic symptoms of dengue include high fever, headache, body pain, nausea and red spots on the skin. Worsening can lead to severe abdominal pain, persistent vomiting and difficulty breathing. Avoid self-medication and if you present these symptoms, seek medical attention.
