During this pandemic, COVID is a real threat to all countries, this is because it is difficult to track the spread of the virus. Because the symptoms that appear with this disease are very similar to other diseases, one of which is Dengue Fever

Dengue Fever or DHF

Dengue hemorrhagic fever or DHF is an easily contagious disease that originates from the bite of the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes. Mosquitoes play a major role as a carrier for the dengue virus. In addition to mosquito bites, dengue fever is triggered by certain risk factors such as:

  • Have been infected with dengue virus before
  • Living or traveling to the tropics
  • Weak immune system

General symptoms of DHF

Symptoms usually resemble those of the flu and can get worse if treated too late. There are also common symptoms such as:

  1. High fever reaches 40 degrees Celsius
  2. Severe headache
  3. Pain in muscles, joints, and bones
  4. Pain in the back of the eye
  5. Decreased appetite
  6. Nausea and vomiting

Therefore, when the rainy season like this is accompanied by the COVID pandemic, it is very difficult to make a general diagnosis. Prevent the spread of dengue-carrying mosquitoes properly
