Dengue Outbreak in India: With over 1,000 cases reported in 3 weeks,

India is currently facing a significant outbreak of Dengue, a mosquito-borne disease that tends to surge with the arrival of monsoon and the rainy season with high humidity.

As per the reports, there has been a rise in the number of dengue cases in the Karnataka capital, a major flipside of the rains and the waterlogging caused by it.

As compared to last year, the number of cases has gone up significantly within the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), in the past three weeks.

Dengue is spread by the Aedes mosquitoes, mainly Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus.

 These mosquitoes thrive in tropical and subtropical areas, making places like Southeast Asia, the Western Pacific, and the Americas prone to Dengue outbreaks.

The virus that causes Dengue belongs to the Flaviviridae family and has four types: DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN-4.
