Managing the dengue outbreak successfully is a challenge both for the government and the people. To eradicate completely the dengue menace, the origin should be analyzed and the preventive and curative measures have to be studied and suitably implemented. First of all, the very presence of the disease spreading mosquitoes and their breeding grounds should completely be eradicated. People with symptoms should immediately be rushed to the primary health centres or hospitals. Awareness has to be created at the grass root level.
