Dengue is a viral fever which is caused due to the bite of Aedes mosquito. The mosquito usually lays eggs in fresh water. So one shouldn’t let the water get accumulated near the houses. The mosquito usually bites in daytime and causes usually 4 types of viral fever. Out of these 4, D2 Strain is considered the most poisonous one as it gets transferred very quickly and can sometimes be life-taking. Doctors also call it Dengue Shock Syndrome.
