Monsoon brings not only happiness but also an unwanted invitation to some mosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria, Yellow Fever, Chikungunya, and Zika are a threat to global health.
Last two year heard a lot about dengue and chikungunya and twice my family member suffer from it and what a disaster time that was when the hospital is full of patient of these mosquito-borne diseases and no bed is available for the patient. I have tried many remedies, advice, tips whatever any person gave me that an infected person must have plenty of rest and drinking lots of fluids to prevent dehydration. It is important to avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin. Have Kiwi, drink coconut water and goat milk. My hubby recovers from it soon but I was afraid that these diseases never come back to my home.
I never want any person go through these diseases which are so much physically, mentally torture. It is rightly said Prevention is better than cure. Now time is to act before these blood little suckers take action in high gear. I have learnt to fight with them and now going to give you some tips regarding it .
What is Zika?
Zika virus is primarily transmitted to people through the bite of an infected mosquito from the Aedes genus, mainly Aedes aegypti in tropical regions. Aedes mosquitoes usually bite during the day, peaking during early morning and late afternoon/evening. This is the same mosquito that transmits dengue, chikungunya virus and yellow fever.
The Zika virus is a mosquito-borne illness first discovered in 1947 when it was isolated from a monkey found in Uganda’s Zika Forest.
Zika’s biggest threat is to unborn children and causes the birth defect microcephaly: abnormal smallness of the head, a congenital condition associated with incomplete brain development. Over 4k suspected cases of microcephaly have been documented in Brazil since then.
