The Department of Disease Control (DDC) has warned the general public, especially those in the southern region, to be cautious of Chikungunya fever risk during the rainy season.
The DDC Director-General, Suwannachai Wattanayingcharoenchai, revealed that there has already been 355 cases of patients with Chikungunya fever in 2018, with southern provinces, namely Satun, Narathiwat, Songkhla, Krabi, and Trang, being the top five provinces with the highest number of patients.
that The number of new patients with this disease since April 2018 has risen higher than the median of the past 5 years, which could be a result from the rainy season where swamps and puddles provide a breeding ground for mosquitos, which are the carrier of this disease.
Chikungunya fever can be found with people from all agers, and exhibits similar symptoms as dengue fever, but without leakage of plasma from blood vessels. The general public are advised to keep their house and community tidy, putting containers that may contain rainwater upside down, change water in vases every week, clear away garbage, and putting lids on water containers, to prevent mosquitos from laying their eggs, as mosquitos are carrier of dengue fever, Zika virus, and Chikungunya fever.Facebook.
