* Rapid diagnosis - persons suspected of having dengue fever must see a doctor at once. Dengue haemorrhagic fever is a deadly disease and early recognition and treatment can save lives. Unless proper treatment is given promptly, the patient may go into shock and die.
* Severe abdominal pains (black stools), bleeding on the skin or from the nose or gums, sweating, cold skin are danger signs. If any one of them is noticed, the patient should be taken to a hospital immediately.
* The patient should be given fluids to drink during transfer to the hospital.
* The patient should be provided nutritious food and fluids.
* The patient should be kept under a mosquito net or in a screened room during the period of illness.
* Doctors and health workers treating cases of dengue fever should also notify the health authorities.
