Notably, according to WHO, once infected with dengue, humans become the main carriers and multipliers of the virus, serving as a source of the virus for uninfected mosquitoes. Patients who are already infected with the dengue virus can transmit the infection via Aedes mosquitoes after the first symptoms appear.
A person infected by the dengue virus develops severe flu-like symptoms. They often get severe headache, pain behind the eyes, nausea, vomiting, swollen glands, muscle and joint pains as well as rash. Unfortunately, there is no specific treatment for dengue fever and patients should seek medical advice, rest and drink plenty of fluids.
According to medical experts, while paracetamol can be taken to bring down fever and reduce joint pains, aspirin or ibuprofen should not be taken since they can increase the risk of bleeding.
