There’s a saying in Hindi which translates to “Don’t judge over the size.” Right now, as the situations are in the capital, the saying is painfully apt for the deadly mosquitoes around. Even though the size is barely enough to be noticed by a bare eye, the destruction is immense. There are two seasons in the year when mosquitoes have their war on. The first is towards the end of winter and advent of spring, and second, the deadliest, is right now, towards the end of monsoon.There are in general three pandemic diseases which are spread around the city, some of them solely caused by mosquitoes and some carried and spread by them. Some of them are:
1. Dengue: Dengue fever is a tropical disease caused by the dengue virus.
2. Chikungunya: Chikungunya is a mosquito-borne viral disease which is transmitted and human to human by infected mosquitoes.
3. Malaria: Another deadly disease caused by mosquitoes caused by Plasmodium parasite.The terror of all these diseases on the population of Delhi can be easily determined by picking up the daily newspaper reporting the number of severe cases registered every day.
