Dengue cases are also increasing in different cities of Pakistan at present.
It is estimated that 400 million people worldwide are infected with dengue every year, of which 96 million are ill.
Dengue fever is caused by the bite of an Aedes mosquito, which is itself infected with the dengue virus and transmits the virus to the blood after the edge, but the disease cannot be sent directly from person to person.
One of the major problems people face during dengue is low platelets, which in some cases can be fatal if left untreated.
Experts say that the following foods should be used during dengue fever.
Extract of papaya leaves
Papaya leaf extract is said to increase platelets. To make its juice, grind a few leaves and squeeze the juice with your hands.
We’ve all heard many times that vitamin C works wonders in boosting the immune system. Use foods like amla, lemons, oranges, pineapples to boost your immune system.
Zinc helps control fever; you can eat a diet rich in zinc or choose zinc tablets readily available in the market.
Vitamin B12 and folic acid
Vitamin B12 and folic acid play an essential role in maintaining a healthy balance of the immune system. Conversely, inadequate levels of folic acid and vitamin B12 can radically alter the immune response.
