VISAKHAPATNAM: An awareness camp on dengue fever, which is causing panic among the people of north Andhra, was organised by Jana Vignana Vedika (JVV) near RTC Complex here on Wednesday.

Doctors, medial representatives, leaders of people’s organisations, and JVV district members took part in the camp where pamphlets on the preventive measures, symptoms of dengue and the steps to be taken by patients, were distributed among the public.

Dengue is caused by a mosquito which is also called tiger mosquito because of its bigger size when compared to the ordinary mosquito. It bites mostly during day to cause dengue fever.

The symptoms are high fever, body pains and aching eyes.
