 (This text is intended to be read by those persons who are not doctors and want to understand dengue , if you are a doctor please read this article : A GLIMPSE ON DENGUE FEVER(click here)

Dengue spreads from one person to the other by a special Dengue Mosquito. This mosquito grows up and multiplies primarily in FRESH WATER (the artificial house hold containers) and it can grow on stagnant/dirty water too. Fresh water is the water present for weeks in POT/PLATES in your kitchen, or WATER in a vase placed on the table for decoration purpose, or water standing in the lawns outside houses.
Dengue mosquito lays eggs in  water , in which adult mosquitoes grow up. When they bite a patient suffering from dengue , the mosquitoes acquire infection . And further when they bite a healthy individual, the healthy person gets dengue. And so the cycle continues. More mosquitoes grow in standing-fresh-water and bite dengue patients first, and then they bite healthy person and cause dengue in them.
Dengue Mosquito is usually found indoors i-e in houses near the floor/under beds , chairs and sofas . Its found through insect studies that it usually bites near the time of sunrise and sunset , and hence at these times maximum preventive measures against the bites of mosquitoes should be taken.
Prevent Yourself from bites OF Mosquito , You will not have dengue ! That’s a foremost measure to be adopted.Prevent Mosquitoes from growing in water , and Kill them by SPRAYS , this is the 2nd most important thing to be done by YOU. REMEMBER, Dengue Spreads Only and Only by MOSQUITO BITES. You  DO NOT get dengue when you drink contaminated water.
