hello..
Best thing is prevention is mosquito bites and mosquito breeding sites like water...don't keep any water containers open...use mosquito nets and mosquito repellents...
if any one has fever then keep onself hydrated well...drink lots of water..have good food..tk proper rest...get blood tests only after 3 days of fever..
