Though the dengue fever can be fatal and proper treatment and care is needed
in the hospital for all the patients yet some people may die due to complications.
The mortality rate in dengue affected people is just 0.02% which is very very low
as compared to the hype created in the media and the minds of the general public.
This does not mean that we should become careless in prevention and treatment
because if precautions are not taken then it can become epidemic and kill a lot
a lot more people than expected.
