Just recently, a family member of an office mate just died recently because of dengue, so I'm making this post to at least provide information and hope that it would help.
Prevention is better than cure. We already know that the culprits are the mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) which carries the deadly dengue virus. One way of preventing them from propagating is cleaning our surroundings to avoid stagnant water where these mosquitoes could lay their eggs.
We can also put safety measures for us and our children by applying insect repellents and/or installing devices that attracts and kills mosquitoes.
Time Caution. Still under prevention, you should be extra careful in doing outdoor activities especially during daytime for this is when dengue mosquitoes usually bite, but they also seldom bite at night when their breeding place is disturbed.
