People die due to mosquito bite in India!! Is Government doing enough!!!

People die due to mosquito bite in India!! Is Government doing enough!!! Dengue, Malaria and chikungunya are the names of just some of the fatal diseases that are caused due to mosquito bites. Did you know that the dengue virus affects about 25000 people in India every year and several of these affected people end up dying? Are lives so easily compromised in our country? Is the government doing enough to ensure clean surroundings and hence lesser mosquito breeding sites? Probably not. It is a fact that unclean surroundings and stagnant water are the main reasons for mosquito breeding and hence these dangerous diseases. Thus as a country it should be our primary concern to remove as many mosquito breeding sites as possible. The government must pay more attention to cleanliness drives so that people can stop living in fear of being ill due to something as little as a mosquito. Moreover the government must be ready at all times to deal with cases of mosquito bites to avoid the deteriorating condition of patients. As the number of cases of mosquito related diseases has gone up, the immediate response of the state and central government is to provide more hospital beds and doctors to treat the affected. It is true that some efforts were also made to prevent breeding of the Aedes mosquito which spreads dengue virus but it was all too little, too late. This is nothing but a tragic story of poor public health measures and insufficient population-level efforts, which have not received deserving attention in India. Local health administration?s failure Our local health administrations always come up with ideas and preventive measures to control spreading of dengue and malaria etc but these ideas mostly remain on paper and are not implemented at a larger level. It is their responsibility to generate awareness about the disease, take measures to stop mosquito breeding and the spread of dengue, and also to ensure proper availability of health services for those have been bitten. But the growing occurrence of dengue, malaria and chikungunya points out to a lack of sufficient and timely preventive and public health efforts by local administrations as well as central government. This is the reason why when the cases start occurring every year, the initial reaction is denial of the occurrence of cases and deaths. What should be done? We are all aware of the fact that we must stop relying on the government completely and find ways on our own to prevent occurrence of mosquito bites. For this, we all need to make efforts to keep our surroundings clean and do not let water collect anywhere. Besides this, a concerted and systematic strategy is needed to bring down the number of cases and deaths. The following are some things that are needed for the same: - Service provision: the first thing needed is the availability of services to patients so that they can visit and consult doctors in a timely and systematic way. It would be great if there could be more focus on population services such as awareness generation prior to the disease season as well as mosquito control etc. - Creation of resources: sufficient public health staff should be available in order to conduct fogging, check mosquito breeding sites and pursue other preventive measures. Supplies like spray machines and insecticides must be available to workers to deal with mosquito population. Moreover, health care facilities should have a backing of enough trained manpower so as to conduct tests and take care of patients. - Financing: None of the preventive measures and mosquito tackling methods can work without proper financing. Sufficient funds should be allocated by the local and state governments. The money financed should reach the right hands at the correct time so that they can take forward their duties from there without being limited due to money. Tropical climate of India may be the reason why mosquitoes are commonly found in our country but the lack of preventive measures too is responsible for mosquito bite related deaths. Nothing is difficult if a country and its government work together as a group. As citizens it is our responsibility to do our bit for the welfare of the society as a whole.

Know About Dengue-IgG

Dengue fever is a viral infection transmitted to humans by mosquitoes that live in tropical and subtropical climates and carry the virus. Blood testing detects the dengue virus or antibodies produced in response to dengue infection.

If a person develops a fever within two weeks following travel to an area where dengue fever is present, it may be prudent to test for dengue fever. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), dengue infections have been reported in more than 100 countries from parts of Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean, the Eastern Mediterranean, Southeast Asia, and the Western Pacific. It is a fast emerging infectious disease, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), with an increasing number of cases and countries affected throughout the world. Approximately 50 to 100 million cases occur annually worldwide.

In the U.S., the majority of dengue cases occur in travelers returning from areas where dengue is endemic. Most dengue cases in U.S. citizens occur in those inhabitants of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Samoa and Guam. Outbreaks where a large number of cases occur in a defined area are rare in the U.S. In recent years, there have been small outbreaks in Texas and Hawaii and a few cases diagnosed in southern Florida.

Many individuals will develop no symptoms at all, or have only a mild illness when exposed to one of the four serotypes of the dengue virus. For those who do develop symptoms, prognosis is still very good for full recovery within a few weeks. The most common initial symptoms are a sudden high fever (104°F or 40°C) and flu-like symptoms that appear roughly 4 to 7 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito (this is called the incubation period and can range from 3 to 14 days). Additional signs and symptoms may include severe headache, especially behind the eyes, muscle and joint pain, skin rash, nausea, vomiting, and swollen glands.

Some people who develop a fever will recover on their own with no lasting ill effects while others may progress to severe dengue fever (sometimes called Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever). If the disease progresses to this form, a new wave of symptoms will appear 3 to 7 days after initial symptoms and as the fever recedes. These may include nose bleeds, vomiting blood, passing blood in the stool, difficulty breathing and cold clammy skin, especially in the extremities. During the second phase, the virus may attack blood vessels (the vascular system), causing capillaries to leak fluid into the space around the lungs (pleural effusion) or into the abdominal cavity (ascites). Currently, there is no explanation as to why dengue fever resolves itself harmlessly in some people while progressing to the severe form in others.

The loss of blood and fluid during the second phase, if untreated, can sometimes develop into a rare condition known as Dengue Shock Syndrome and can be fatal. In order to avoid that complication, a doctor may hospitalize a patient with dengue fever so that falling blood pressure and dehydration caused by the loss of blood and fluids can be managed while the disease runs its course ? generally a period of one to two weeks. During the following week of recovery, a person may develop a second rash that lasts a week or more.

Dengue fever is usually diagnosed via some combination of blood tests because the body's immune response to the virus is dynamic and complex. Laboratory tests may include:

Molecular tests for dengue virus (PCR)?detect the presence of the virus itself; these tests can diagnose dengue fever up to 5 days after the onset of symptoms. Antibody tests, IgM and IgG?detect antibodies produced by the immune system when a person has been exposed to the virus; these tests are most effective when performed at least 7-10 days after exposure. Complete blood count (CBC)?to look for low platelet count typical of the later stages of the illness and to detect the decrease in hemoglobin, hematocrit, and red blood cell (RBC) count (evidence of anemia) that would occur with blood loss associated with severe dengue fever Basic metabolic panel (BMP) ? to monitor kidney function and look for evidence of dehydration that can occur with severe illness

Dengue Fever Antibodies; Dengue Fever Virus; Dengue Antibodies (IgG, IgM); Dengue Virus by PCR.

Fever; Thrombocytopenia

To diagnose dengue fever, particularly if you are experiencing fever after travel to a tropical or subtropical destination. When you develop a high fever within 2 weeks of travel to an area where dengue fever is endemic or an outbreak is occurring.

Testing may be ordered when individuals have signs and symptoms associated with dengue following travel to tropical locations where the virus is present. Some of the main signs and symptoms include:

  • Sudden high fever (104°F or 40°C)
  • Severe headache or pain behind the eyes
  • Joint, muscle and/or bone pain
  • Gum and nose bleeds
  • Easy bruising
  • Low white blood cell count

Testing is usually ordered within one to two weeks of the onset of symptoms to detect an acute infection. If antibody testing is performed, an additional blood sample may be collected after two weeks of symptoms to determine if the antibody level is rising.

ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) : The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay is a commonly used analytical biochemistry assay, first described by Engvall and Perlmann in 1972. The assay uses a solid-phase enzyme immunoassay to detect the presence of a ligand in a liquid sample using antibodies directed against the protein to be measured.


1.64 IV or less: Negative - No significant level of detectable dengue fever virus IgG antibody. 1.65-2.84 IV: Equivocal - Questionable presence of antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-14 days may be helpful. 2.85 IV or greater: Positive - IgG antibody to dengue fever virus detected, which may indicate a current or past infection.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Dengue fever is caused due to bite of Dengue Mosquito which is present in tropical and warm areas. The person whose immunity system is very weak becomes victim by the Dengue fever.

No. Complete Blood Count (CBC) test can be used to check platelates and (White Blood Cells) WBC count in the blood, so there is no such requirement of empty stomach.

Following are the symptoms or warning sign of the Dengue fever:

  • High fever (above 100 F) for 4 to 7 days
  • Mild headaches
  • Joint and muscles pain
  • Immunity weakness
  • Red rashes on body skin
  • Vomiting, etc.

There is no specific treatment for Dengue fever but if it is in second phase and untreated, can sometimes develop into a rare condition known as Dengue Shock Syndrome and can be fatal. In order to avoid that complication, a doctor may hospitalize a patient with Dengue fever so that falling blood pressure and dehydration caused by the loss of blood and fluids can be managed while the disease runs its course ? generally a period of one to two weeks.

The fever remains for 3?4 days . The platelet count shows a decreasing trend in the first week after which it keeps on increasing

Dengue fever can be detected by various diagnostic test so the cost of these test can be varying with test by test. But generally the cost for the Dengue test in india is from range Rs 750 to Rs 3000.

Dengue infection in pregnancy carries the risk of hemorrhage for both the mother and the newborn. In addition, there is a serious risk of premature birth and foetal death. ... During a recent outbreak we encountered at least seven cases of fever with thrombocytopenia in pregnancy but only two were seropositive for dengue.

During a recent outbreak we encountered at least seven cases of fever with thrombocytopenia in pregnancy but only two were seropositive for dengue. We report here two interesting cases of pregnancy with dengue that came to our hospital and were managed successfully.

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is one type of antibody that is "tailor-made" to attack a specific disease-causing agent (called a pathogen). Herpes IgG is the type produced when an HSV infection occurs.

Following are the Dengue diagnostic/laboratory test:

  1. Dengue IgG
  2. Dengue IgM(MAC-ELISA)
  3. Zika virus testing
  4. Complete Blood Count (CBC)/Hemogram
  5. Arbovirus test
  6. West Nile Virus Testing
  7. Electrolytes
  8. Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT)

Positive IgM and IgG tests for dengue antibodies detected in an initial blood sample mean that it is likely that the person became infected with dengue virus within recent weeks. If the IgG is positive but the IgM is low or negative, then it is likely that the person had an infection sometime in the past. If the dengue IgG antibody titer increases four-fold or greater (e.g., titer of 1:4 to a titer of 1:64) between an initial sample and one taken 2 to 4 weeks later, then it is likely that a person has had a recent infection. Negative tests for IgM and/or IgG antibodies may mean that the individual tested does not have a dengue infection and symptoms are due to another cause, or that the level of antibody may be too low to measure. The person may still have a dengue infection - it may just be that it is too soon after initial exposure to the virus to produce a detectable level of antibody.

| IgM Result | IgG Result |Possible Interpretation| |--|--|--| | Positive | Negative | Current infection | | Positive | Positive | Current infection | | Negative | Positive | Past infection | | Negative |Negative | No infection or Early Stage

Preventing Dengue fever is the only key to combating dengue fever, because there is no such treatment. Avoid the living in tropical areas and avoid being bitten by Dengue mosquitoes. Destroy the source where Mosquito population is generated, like flower pots, old garbage, contaminated water etc. Use insect repellents, full cloths, mosquito net for windows , etc.

Dengue fever is a Infectious disease caused due to Dengue Mosquito (Aedes aegypti Mosquito) bite. Dengue fever antibodies, breakbone fever, Dengue fever virus, Dengue antibodies (IgG,IgM) & Dengue virus by PCR are common names of Dengue fever.Mild infecetion can cause painful or debilitating symptoms. Severe fever, muscles pain & immunity weakness are some common dengue fever symptoms. Blood test report diagnose the dengue virus. There is no specific treatment for dengue fever, increasing immunity is only way to dissapear dengue.

Dengue and Chikungunya are caused due to same mosquito i.e. Aedes Mosquito and having simillar symptoms but both are concern with different viruses. Dengue is caused by Flavirideae virus whereas Chikungunya is caused by Togaviridae virus.
