    These patients are infected with a second serotype of the virus (Flavivirus), which is more serious consequence known as dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) can lead to shock and even death. Patients should not use aspirin. People should go to the doctors for a check-up before traveling from tropical and subtropical areas. Dehydration can happen if someone is infected with the first serotype, they need to take large amounts of fluid in order to prevent dehydration.
    There isn’t any vaccine for this disease yet, hope patients will take full precautions from getting and spreading it.
    Thanks
