Dengue and Chikungunya Prevention and Control

Dengue is a debilitating viral infection of the tropics, transmitted by mosquitoes which inturn causes sudden fever and acute pains in the joints. Chikungunya is a febrile infection that resembles dengue which occurs especially in parts of Africa, India and South Eastern Asia caused by a toga virus of the genus aphavirus (species chikungunya virus) and transmitted by mosquitoes especially of the genus aedes.

Dengue and chikungunya infections are caused by viruses but they are different viruses. Chikungunya is caused by a togaviridae alphavirus while dengue is caused by a flavirideae flavivirus. Both viral infections are spread by aedes mosquito. Dengue is much more common and more fatal than Chikungunya and it is more dangerous which may need emergency medical intervention. However chikungunya joint pain may last for years causing long term quality of life issues and the most distinguishing feature of dengue is bleeding. It is also possible for a patient to have dengue and chikungunya at the same time (coinfection). Sometimes dengue/ chikungunya is also confused with malaria.
