Dengue Fever Causes in Humans
The dengue fever causes by dengue virus that is transmitted to humans through Aedes aegypti mosquito and Aedes albopictus mosquito. Unlike mosquitoes that commonly find food at night, Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus generally bite in the morning until late afternoon.
Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes are often found in non-flowing drainage water, ponds, reservoirs, or bathrooms in our homes. That means these insects make the water calm as a medium for breeding.
Areas that have poor sanitation levels, such as in densely populated cities located in developing countries (one of Indonesia), are areas that are often hit by dengue fever. In addition to the ever-increasing population, the spread of dengue virus is also supported by its ever-increasing mobility.
Dengue virus itself is divided into four strains or types, namely DEN 1, DEN 2, DEN 3, and DEN 4. When you contracted one type of dengue virus for the first time and managed to recover, then your body will form lifelong immunity against the type of virus The. However you are not completely safe from dengue fever because it is still potentially suffering from this disease again by a different type of virus.
