Experts have warned of a fresh wave of dengue fever and recommended preventative measures in the twin cities, as well as increased security.



People have been urged not to keep water reservoirs open in the aftermath of a new incidence of dengue illness in Islamabad and Rawalpindi. Remove air conditioning and potable water to prevent female mosquitoes from breeding. Water is commonly kept in tyre puncture pots, metal drums, earthenware, and small concrete walls, which provide a breeding ground for dengue mosquitoes.

Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in clean water, increasing the risk of dengue fever. Dengue fever, according to medical expert Dr Wasim Khawaja, is still a big public health concern. Dengue fever is a serious disease that affects newborns, toddlers, and adults, according to him.

According to Dr. Khawaja, Pakistan has discovered four forms of dengue virus, the most serious and frequent of which is AIDS carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

Due of the rising population, he noted, dengue afflicted a big number of people. Dengue fever has the potential to spread quickly, especially in water bodies and waste areas.

According to Dr. Wasim, AIDS is an Egyptian disease that feeds on blood and spreads the dengue virus from one person to the next. The virus survives in human blood for two to seven days, during which time it infects the host with dengue fever. Dengue fever symptoms, on the other hand, vary with age.
