Dengue, Chikungunya & Zika

 

This year’s GAMAMORSE we are bringing up dengue and chikungunya as our main topic. We pick these topic because of its urgency especially  in tropical region and developing country. Dengue fever is common in more than 110 countries worldwide. It infects 50 to 528 million people worldwide a year, leading to half a million hospitalizations and causing approximately 20.000 deaths annually. With mortality rate around 1-2%.

And Chikungunya is a very common disease in developing nations, with and estimated 3 million infections annually. Usually, with the correct management and therapy, the symptoms and mortality rate could be minimized.

We also bring Zika as one of our topic. Zika is one of the phenomenal disease that is also a mosquito transmitted and the symtomps are just like dengue and chikungunya. With the rumor surrounding the outbreak of microcephaly in Brazil recently, along the outbreak of Zika virus itself. Another symtomps of Zika virus includes fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis, lasting from days to a week.
