Story


Hi, My name is Harsha Vardhan a class 7 in DPS east . I am supporting  Behtar Swasthya (Health) ,  aim to fight the scourge of mosquito borne diseases.


Dengue is one of the most fatal mosquito-borne viral infections in the world, infecting lakhs of people and killing hundreds each year in India alone. I am  with NDTVs Behtar Swasthya mission fight the scourge of dengue by creating awareness about it.  We spred awarness to people  about the main symptoms to look out for, and how to deal with the disease if someone close to you is affected by it.  I am campaigning door to door in the vulnerable neighbourhoods .



The cause of dengue and its symptoms:
Dengue is caused by a family of viruses that are transmitted by mosquitoes. Typical symptoms include severe joint and muscle pain, swollen lymph nodes, headache, fever, exhaustion, and rash. The presence of fever, rash, and a headache, also known as the “dengue triad” is characteristic of dengue fever.


There is no specific medicine or antibiotic to treat dengue. For typical dengue fever, the treatment is directed towards the relief of symptoms (symptomatic treatment). The acute phase of illness characterized by fever and muscle pain lasts about one to two weeks. Recovery generally takes two to seven days.



How to treat Dengue:

There is no specific medicine or antibiotic to treat dengue. For typical dengue fever, the treatment is directed towards the relief of symptoms (symptomatic treatment). The acute phase of illness characterized by fever and muscle pain lasts about one to two weeks. Recovery generally takes two to seven days.


If down with Dengue, avoid all medication except paracetamol, get plenty of rest, drink a lot of fluids and consult a doctor in case of any complication.


How you can participate :


Along with creating awareness, we are providing Dengue Protection for underprivileged children. By just paying merely Rs. 300/child (this includes treatment cover worth Rs. 20,000 for a year, mosquito repellents to last the dengue season and a dengue prevention workshop) you will be saving a life.


Thank your very much for your help and contributing to the cause.
