HEADS UP FOR THE PERSUASIVE PROBLEMS IN SINGAPORE, CALL FOR DENGUE EMERGENCY
A lot of diseases have been introduced recently like the monkeypox, covid19, and now this Singapore dengue epidemic. Through this kind of natural behavior, we can predict that something big is going to appear. But we don’t know what exactly that is?
The spreading of the disease which doesn’t have a proper cure has increased. Instead of knowing the precaution for dengue disease cases are so fast-spreading that the Singapore government can handle them. Just imagine a few climatic changes can cause such a huge problem.
WHAT IS DENGUE?
Dengue is a viral disease spread by the Aedes mosquito which is mostly found in tropical and subtropical areas. Dengue is most likely to happen among children because of its low immune system.
People living in tropical regions have a greater chance of being affected by this disease. As The tropical regions are the birthplace of Aedes mosquitos. Every year, an estimated 390 million dengue infections occur around the world, resulting in up to 35,000 deaths.
The common symptoms of the dengue virus are high fever, abdominal pain, headache, vomiting, etc. In extreme cases, bleeding, breathing difficulty, and organ failure might occur. Dengue usually lasts for 3-7 days and doesn’t have a proper cure. If a person gets affected twice by dengue then the risk of not getting cured increases a lot.
SINGAPORE DENGUE EMERGENCY
Singapore is the greatest epidemic of dengue virus as it is the source of the Aedes mosquitos due to its environmental condition. The climatic changes are the ones that make the spreading of dengue disease worst.
Singapore’s government says that Singapore is facing dengue emergence as the outbreak of seasonal disease has come early this year. Recently, the state has recorded active cases exceeding 11,000 which is far beyond the 5,285 reported in 2021, before June. The resident incidence was highest in the 15-24-year-old group, with a male-to-female ratio of 1.6: 1. Most infections in children are asymptomatic, but infections in adults are more symptomatic. All four dengue serotypes have been found in Singapore.
Experts say that “it is not Singapore that should worry because of its breeding ground for these mosquitos that carry the virus but also other countries should” prepare themselves for this type of situation. That’s because changes in the global climate may occur such outbreaks and are likely to become widespread in the coming years.
Singapore minister said that “cases are definitely rising faster and it is an urgent emergence phrase that we have to deal with”. The WHO said that “cases had increased 30 fold in the last 50 years.”
This is the time to follow all the safety measures provided by the government. In Singapore, The temperature reached a record high of 36.7 degrees Celsius in May, and the humidity was overwhelming. If climate change doesn’t improve then there would no way that we are going to stop this epidemic in the coming years.
