Chennai, India: In spite of several measures by the State Health Department in Tamil Nadu to control *vector borne diseases, the number of dengue, malaria, chikungunya and other infectious diseases has not gone down in the last two months. Numbers rose to 9,750 from 4,845 in the last month and a half.
Tamil Nadu has recorded an increase of 49.37 percent when compared to 2016. The state stands second for the highest number of dengue cases reported in a state all over the country.
In most areas, tribals are completely unaware of the epidemic and are suffering greatly. Hundreds of children have died. Most government programs do not go to remote villages where many are already weak due to malnutrition. This task is fulfilled by native leaders as an act of God’s love.
*Vectors are living organisms that can transmit infectious diseases between humans or from animals to humans. … Mosquitoes are the best known disease vector. Others include ticks, flies, sandflies, fleas, triatomine bugs and some freshwater aquatic snails.
GRM NATIVE DIRECTOR SHARES HOW THEY ARE DEFEATING KILLER VIRUS WITH THE LOVE OF CHRIST:
“Currently, the people in south India are being affected by Dengue and Malaria Fever. Particularly by Dengue fever. More than 300 children, men and women died in Tamil Nadu. People from villages are mostly being affected by Dengue and Malaria fever. Our government does not provide proper treatment to the people. Dengue virus is formed by mosquitoes and other insects. The Dengue Virus will break RBC and immediately blood platelets will be decreased. In our state Tamil Nadu, it spread so fast and became a killer virus.
As per the Doctor’s consult, herbal medicines such as Chiretta and Papaya leaf are best for particular Killer Fever Called Dengue.
So, we as team provided Chiretta Juice (In Tamil called Nilavembu) and Papaya leaf juice in order to recover the Dengue affected people and prevent normal people from Dengue fever. People from the village are not aware of this Dengue fever.
We caused awareness about this particular fever and other killer virus among village people. Teaching them how they can be saved from the virus, what herbal medicines to be used and what foods to be used for Dengue affected people.”
