You could be the next victim; are you equipped to counterattack?

The recent alarming upsurge in the number of mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue and chikungunya in India, has made everyone sit up and take notice. Not only is the state being attacked at a rapid pace by the dengue menace, the dreaded chikungunya is not far behind. Unfortunately, 2017 does not look promising either, with a fair number of cases of Chikungunya and Dengue both being reported in the last three months; and this being only the start of the year!

What then is the cause of these two dreaded illnesses?

For both Dengue and Chikungunya, we have the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquito to blame, and like most of the other mosquitoes, these two species also make their home in corners of the house and nearby surroundings. An ideal breeding ground also includes dark, damp spaces such as water storage tanks, flower pots, gutters, plastic containers – all of which become flush with stagnant water during the monsoon, and provide abundant breeding sites for these deadly pests. However, it is not only the monsoon when these mosquitoes thrive – year-round, as long as the environment is conducive, they will continue to breed.

What are the possible solutions to counter this menace?

While the Indian government has launched several awareness programmes to educate the masses about these silent serial killers, it is up to each one of us to do our bit irrespective of season or weather. Taking extra precaution during the monsoon, especially, to clean out those damp and dark corners will help keep the mosquitoes away. With the Aedes aegypti mosquito being the most active during the day, it is also advisable to keep covered and wear loose clothing. People also swear by mosquito nets, which can be useful when sleeping. Of course, using mosquito repellents whether in the form of sprays, gels or patches are also recommended across all age groups, both during the day and night.
