Spreading Dengue Awareness

We are a large family of Indian origin with most of us in US and Canada. Recently we had multiple people in our family suffer from Dengue in different cities of India. Unfortunately we lost one of us!
We realize that most people are not aware of the seriousness of the situation. Even healthcare personnel seem to take this rather lightly.
We are trying to spread awareness by reaching out to as many people as we can.
You are best advocate for your health
Young, old and non residents and people with low immunity are at higher risk
Prevention is easy, just avoid mosquito bite!
If you have fever, go to a doctor (Some doctors may say it is viral fever and subside in 3~4 days)
Insist on IgM and platelet count; repeat for 4 days
If platelets are below 100,000 get admitted
