Dengue fever, a mosquito-borne viral illness, continues to be a significant global health concern, impacting millions of people every year. This article aims to shed light on the complexities of dengue, exploring its causes, symptoms, prevention, and treatment options. By understanding the threat posed by this debilitating disease, we can work towards effective prevention strategies and improved patient care.
