How To Save Kids From Dengue?
Dengue has increased the death rate of kids in India in the past couple of years. As of now it has not been possible for scientists to come-up with a sure sort cure for this deadly disease. This is why the death rate caused due to dengue is increasing. On a more actual note, you can only protect your kids and other family members from dengue, by making sure that they don’t come in contact with the mosquitoes without proper repellent. Let’s learn why is it so important to save kids from dengue disease.
As compared to adults, there is more care needed for the kids as they cannot protect themselves from the mosquitoes. Indeed, using repellents like coal, spray and lotions are good ways to protect them from the dengue but they come up with some side effects, bad smell and give skin irritations etc. There are natural mosquito repellents available too but using them alone is not enough.
Save kids from dengue: Methods to consider
You should also use below mentioned ways to save kids from dengue.
1# Keep the surroundings clean
Unlike ordinary mosquito, the dengue mosquito prefers to stay on the clean water. So, do not ignore if there is clean standing water around your surroundings. Make sure that:
- The water containers are empty and you have to leave the place for water to store i.e. tires and empty containers
- Do not over water your plants, garden and even do not over water the bird’s water container with water
- Pour kerosene in open drains to cut the oxygen
- If there is a pond near your house, consider growing fishes that eat mosquitoes.
2# Dress your child properly:
Make sure that your child is not wearing half sleeved t-shirts and half tops. Cover the maximum part of their body by making your child wear leggings, long sleeved t-shirts, trousers, and tops etc. Mosquitoes are attracted toward bright colors and prints. So avoid them to save your kids from dengue.
3# Make your home mosquito proof:
A home can be turned into mosquito proof simply but installing meshes and screens on the windows and doors. Make sure that there are no tears on holes on the meshes to ensure that the mosquitoes do not enter in the home. You can also use the mosquito nets while sleeping at night.
