Let's learn about some of these diseases


1. Respiratory Diseases-

Many times when we have a cold-cough and we ignore it. But if you get fever, cold or cough in rainy season, don't ignore it. This is because coughs often turn into serious illnesses such as bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, and COPD. In such cases, the patient has to be admitted to the intensive care unit and given high quality medicines and oxygen.

It is caused by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that lay their eggs in rain-soaked clear water. The dengue virus enters the human body through mosquitoes. The disease causes high fever, excessive headache, joint pain in the limbs, and most importantly a thin reddish, itchy rash on the body, especially on the back. Not only that, but it also causes a rapid decrease in blood platelets. Bleeding from urine, defecation, sputum as well as internally.
