Fight Dengue today!

Normal people are scared of ghosts and spirits. But me, I am more scared of these devils known as “mosquitoes”. These blood sucking parasites have no heart, they do not see whether they’re biting a child or a pregnant lady. Whether it’s a poor person who dies of Dengue or whether it is someone who is very cleanliness-friendly but by chance happened to visit the garden every morning. The very thought of something happening to my baby boy frightens me, and every time I see the nasty bites on his hands or legs, I am so angry!

I believe not everyone is aware of how deadly mosquitoes can be, spreading life-threatening diseases like Malaria and Dengue. I use life-threatening and not life-taking because fortunately there are medicines and cures for these. But there was a time when there was no cure, years ago, and millions have helplessly died.

Today, we are blessed to live in an era where we have access to the best facilities, medicines, knowledge, technology etc.

You must have definitely seen this TVC- 

Payal is the depiction of a child who is worried and wants to do something to change the future of her family, friends, classmates etc. If we start incorporating small changes in our daily routine like closing windows in the evening, not having any stagnant water in our balcony, near home or in the society, dumping garbage properly, using mosquito-repellants like All-Out, maintaining overall cleanliness and visiting the doctor immediately on first signs of dengue; then we will be able to save a lot of lives. Here are a few symptoms you need to watch out for:

FEVER – around 40°C
WEAKNESS – intense fatigue
PAIN IN THE BODY – behind the eyes and joints

Remember the old but meaningful saying, prevention is better than cure. And Dengue mosquitoes come in the morning, so make sure you and your family are wearing fully covered clothes, applying repellants or switching on the All-out machine even in the morning!
