Myths And Facts About Dengue: At present, dengue patients are increasing very fast in the country. The reason for the increasing graph of this fever is to increase anxiety. In such a situation, it is necessary that extra precautions should be taken so that the mosquitoes that spread this disease do not breed anywhere near the house. There should be a collective effort to save dengue mosquitoes from breeding. If everyone understands their responsibility and does not allow clean water to accumulate in any vessel or place around the house, then the danger of dengue can be avoided.
When a disease or infection spreads, many myths related to it also spread along with it. At present, something similar is happening in the case of dengue as well. The sad thing is that if a person falls prey to the myths about a dangerous disease like dengue, then this fever can prove to be fatal. The most prevalent myths at this time are as follows.
1. Dengue and covid can never coexist
Not only in India but also in countries like Thailand, Bangladesh, Singapore, many such cases have been reported, in which the patient has had an infection of covid and dengue together. Although it has also happened in these cases that in the initial test only Kovid test comes positive and dengue negative but then suddenly the symptoms of dengue with high fever also dominate the body. So don’t get the illusion that if there is covid then dengue cannot happen and if you have been cured of covid a few days ago then dengue cannot happen, these are just myths.
2. Dengue happens only once in life
It is also a very common misconception that dengue occurs only once in a lifetime. it’s not like that at all. Because any person can get dengue 4 to 5 times in life and even more. It is also possible that dengue may appear with more severe symptoms the next time than it was at first. Therefore, this fever should never be mistaken for mild and medicines should be taken in the right way according to the doctor’s advice.
3. There are no types of dengue
It is a myth that there is only one type of dengue. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are 4 serotypes of dengue virus. When a person gets dengue, his body develops immunity only against the serotype of which dengue he has had. This immunity is temporary and partial to other serotypes of dengue. Therefore, dengue occurring in the second or third time can be more lethal than the dengue that occurred earlier.
4. Dengue is cured by the juice of papaya leaves
This remedy is very popular among the home remedies related to dengue that dengue is cured by the juice of papaya leaves. Actually, the juice of papaya leaves is helpful in improving the health of the patient fighting dengue and it is not a cure for dengue. When dengue is being treated through medicines, giving juice of papaya leaves helps in maintaining platelets.
