According to World Health Organization (WHO), vectors are defined as organisms that channel pathogens and parasites from one infected person ( or animals ) to another, causing dreadful illnesses in humans.
If you go to places where safe potable waters are scarce and sanitation systems are big problems (usually tropical and sub-tropical countries), be careful! Vector-borne diseases are prevalent on these areas .
A month ago, a loving father untimely left his family while working overseas. Their ship sailed to a malaria infected place and unfortunately, he didn’t arm himself of necessary precautions. Should he considered that a small mosquito is deadly, he would probably be coming back home ‘unboxed’.
In 2007 it was reported that around 627,000 people from around the globe died due to MALARIA. And world-renowned Bill Gates, through his Facebook post, had cautioned the general public.
On the other hand, DENGUE took the first spot being the world’s fastest growing vector borne disease. For over 50 years, its cases horribly blossomed 3o folds!
For these reasons, we strongly urge you to keep safe always.
