As long as there are insects in the world, no one can rule out the insect-borne diseases. That is the rule of Nature. The man has the intellectual capacity to take precautions. However, the diseases persist. We shall now look at some of the common insect-borne diseases in South as well as Latin America.
Yellow fever: This typical disease is prevalent only in the African continent and South America. Mosquitoes usually bite people in the late evenings or night. However, a day-biting mosquito is the main carrier of this disease, preventable by immunization. The most common fallout of the bite of this mosquito is jaundice. Hence, the disease has its name, ‘yellow fever’. Between the years 1985 and 1998, there was a terrible outbreak of this disease in the countries such as Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Ecuador, etc with more than 45% of the world’s cases from this region alone.
Dengue: This is a universal disease characterized by headaches, joint and muscle pain, rashes, and fever. The main carrier of this disease is a day-biting mosquito, Aedes, found in large numbers in the Caribbean, Central, and South America, as well as South East Asia. This is a common disease prevalent in more than 60 tropical countries. Usually, dengue is not fatal. However, forms of dengue, the Dengue Hemorrhagic fever (DHF) can cause severe fatalities.
Chikungunya: This is a disease very much similar to dengue but with a considerably lower fatality rate.
Zika virus: This virus is the talk of the town today all over the globe with its controversy surrounding the Rio Olympics. The carrier is the same mosquito that transmits chikungunya and dengue. This disease usually affects pregnant women and their fetuses causing severe abnormalities to the unborn fetus. The Zika virus issue has assumed great proportions in recent times. There is no vaccine for the virus. However, you can take precautions against the same.
