Accord ing to reports, dengue is one of the most deadly disease in the world today since it affects between 50 and 100 million people in the tropics and subtropics each year, resulting in fever, muscle and joint ache. But it can also be fatal, developing into hemorrhagic fever and shock syndrome, which is characterised by bleeding and a loss of blood pressure. The disease is transmitted by the mosquito Aedes aegypti.
Pakistani health officials said dengue fever spread fast in the country due to the prolonged monsoon rains and unusually high seasonal temperatures.

With the huge number of people killed and inflicted by dengue, Pakistani officials vowed to work even harder to finally put a stop to the spread of disease in their country.
