Rising Dengue Cases in North India
Dengue cases in North India have been on the rise in recent years.
The disease is spread by the Aedes mosquito, which breeds in stagnant water.
Symptoms of dengue include high fever, severe headache, joint and muscle pain, and rash.
Severe cases of dengue can lead to dengue hemorrhagic fever, which can be fatal.
To control the spread of dengue, measures such as fogging, use of mosquito nets, and removal of stagnant water are being taken.
Preventive measures such as vaccination and public awareness campaigns are also being promoted.
