The doctor warned county and state health officers in Florida as well as the Center for Illness Control ( CDC ). That caused an inquiry that exposed twenty-three more cases in Key West. Prevention is the key – thru mosquito control and private protection.
But now and then the sickness turns into dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome, which can often be deadly. It causes up to a hundred million diseases and 25,000 mortalities every year. A single infected traveler returning from the Caribbean, South America or Pacific Rim could trigger a flare-up. CDC lists fast urbanization, a rise in synthetic boxes that serve as mosquito breeding areas, increased world travel and shortage of effective mosquito control measures as contributory elements to the rise. Nobody knows precisely what led to the breakout in Key West. Also, there should be other preventative measures so that the pathogen may never become ready to spread. It can truly be life-threatening and above all else, there isn't any antibiotic to address it. Therefore there remains no way out but to keep your environment clean which may stop the mosquitoes to grow. You may certainly have to make some efforts, it is your job to ensure that dengue doesn't get did well.
