What is Dengue Fever?

Dengue or 'Dengue' / 'Dengue fever' is a dangerous infectious disease. Dengue is also known as "Bone-broken fever", because it causes a lot of pain in the body and joints. Like malaria, dengue fever is also spread by mosquito bites. Dengue is not spread by all mosquitoes. It is spread only by certain species of mosquito. The vectors of this disease are two species of Aedes mosquito – known as Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopectus.

Causes of Dengue Fever:

Dengue fever is spread by two types of mosquitoes that bite during the day. These mosquitoes are known as Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopectus. Dengue Fever is caused by infection with "Dengue" virus, it is also called "Den virus". There are four types of dengue virus, which are known as DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3 and DEN-4 (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, DEN-4).

DEN 2 and DEN 4 are less dangerous than DEN 1 and DEN 3. Dengue is not spread by all mosquitoes. It is spread only by certain species of mosquitoes that are mainly part of the "Flaviviridae" family and the "Flaviviruses" genus.

Symptoms of Dengue fever:

Symptoms of dengue fever usually appear 3 to 14 days after infection and also depend on the type of fever. We have mentioned above the types of dengue fever. Dengue fever can have more than one symptom. Generally, the symptoms of dengue fever are as follows:-
