months. Though the fever comes down abruptly in 2 days, joint pain, intense headache, insomnia and an great degree of prostration lasts for a variable period.
Symptomatic treatment is recommended for chikungunya and a serological test is done.
Will fogging and using larvicides help? "Yes, but only temporarily," a top public health official said. "It will only result in a transient reduction of the number of mosquitoes. The permanent solution is to eliminate the sources of breeding." Which in the case of the Aedes aegypti and Anopheles mosquitoes, is fresh, unpolluted water, he explained.
From water stored in buckets to open tanks, all pose a threat to become the breeding area for mosquitoes. Hence, we should get rid of them.
"The Aedes mosquito is like a pet dog. It only bites those who allow it to breed. It does not travel very far, tries to find its meal in the vicinity of its original breeding ground," explains the public health official.
We need to keep ourselves fully covered during the daytime, as it is a daytime mosquito, which spreads the disease. Mosquito repellents will also be useful.
