What is a mosquito-borne disease?
As we all know, a mosquito feeds on blood. But it is to the point that it also consumes whatever viruses or parasites that are there. Through its saliva, the mosquito can transmit these diseases and parasites to the next person it bites. Any disease that is transmitted from mosquito to human (or animal) in this manner is referred to as ‘mosquito-borne disease.’
While the insect is unaffected, mosquito-borne illnesses may cause huge problems for people. Every year, 390 million people are afflicted with dengue, and hundreds of millions more are infected with Zika, chikungunya, and yellow fever.
Malaria, dengue fever, West Nile virus, chikungunya, yellow fever, and Zika are some of the most common mosquito-borne illnesses.
The Zika virus is typically transmitted to humans through mosquito bites in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. The majority of those infected with the Zika virus show no signs or symptoms but some people get a mild fever, rash, and muscular ache.
Malaria is a potentially deadly disease that often causes severe disease, including high fevers, shivering chills, and flu-like symptoms.
Symptoms appear after 3–6 days and include fever, chills, headache, backache, and muscular pains. About 15% of persons who have yellow fever develop acute disease, which can result in hemorrhage, shock, organ failure, and, in extreme cases, death.
West Nile Virus
One in every five infected persons develops a fever along with additional symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash. Most people who have West Nile virus fever recover completely, but lethargy and weakness might continue for weeks or months. A few people have had severe symptoms.
Symptoms generally appear 3–7 days after being bitten by an infected insect. Fever and joint discomfort are the most typical symptoms. Other symptoms include a headache, muscular soreness, joint swelling, and a rash. Chikungunya sickness is seldom fatal, although the symptoms can be severe and incapacitating.
How to prevent mosquitoes from infecting you:
Of course, there’s no way to know if you’re infected the moment you’re bitten by a mosquito, so what can you do?
Destroy their territory!
- Disregard waters in rain gutters, buckets, plastic covers, or any container that a mosquito can breed into.
- Regularly change water in fountains and swimming pools every week to eliminate potential mosquito habitats.
- Water-based plants are also not safe so regularly empty and change the water in their jars.
Prepare The Respective Shields!
- If you don’t have any window or door screens, you better call someone to create it for you ASAP to cover all gaps there are.
- Use bed netting at night to avoid mosquitoes from biting you when you’re asleep.
- Request for Assistance from the Know-It-All professionals
