Philippines: Dengue outbreak pandemic – News

Philippines According to BBC reports, the outbreak of dengue fever in the Philippines is the national epidemic after more than 20 people died from mosquito bites this year.

According to the Philippines Ministry of Health, between January and July 20, 146,000 cases have been reported. This is an increase of 98 percent over the same period last year.

Dengue fever is a viral disease that spreads from Aedes mosquitoes. Symptoms are similar to severe flu, such as severe fever with colds and sweating, severe muscle aches, omissions and dehydration.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) globally, the frequency of dengue fever has increased dramatically in the last decades and almost half of the world's population is at risk of shock. There is no specific drug for the disease, but if it is discovered early and the patient receives health care quickly, the death rate is below one percent, according to WHO.

Corrected: In an earlier version of the lesson, the epidemic was wrongly attributed to another country.
