Dengue fever and other severe dengue symptoms are the result of a viral illness spread by mosquito bites. Those infected with dengue often have a high temperature, headache, bodily pains, nausea, and rash. As the population of Aedes mosquitoes, which transmit the dengue virus, has surged in the early days of summer, medical professionals have warned that Bangladesh may have an even more severe outbreak of the disease in 2023 than in the previous years.
With the heat and humidity rising every day, there are days when we often end up spraying ourselves with ample amounts of body sprays or colognes, as a quick fix for body odour. Little do we realise, how much it worsens the situation.
As summer temperatures surge, it is crucial to be mindful of the effects of heat on your body and know high-temperature safety tips. An extreme case of hot weather increases the likelihood of dehydration, overheating, and heatstroke. If heatstroke is not treated quickly, it may cause irreversible damage to the brain and other essential organs or even death.
