Dengue is an acute flu like fever caused by virus. It occurs in two forms:
  
• Dengue fever
• Dengue Hemorrhagic fever.

Dengue or dengue-like-epidemic were reported throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in the Americas, south Europe, North Africa, the eastern Mediterranean, Asia and Australia and on various islands in the India Ocean, the south and central pacific and Carribbean. It has steadily increased in both incidence and distribution over the past 40 years. Annually, it is estimated that there are 20 million cases of dengue infection, resulting in around 24,000 deaths. Aedes aegypti, the transmitters of the disease is a day-biting mosquito that lays eggs in clear water containers, such as flower vases, cans, rain barrels, old rubber tyres. Adult mosquitoes rest in dark places of the house.
