Sickness brought about infectious microorganisms which is ……to individuals via parasitic arthropods is what is termed as a “Vector Borne Disease”. Bugs or 8 legged creatures are arthropods and these act as vectors. For example: blood sucking insects like mosquitoes, lice, gnawing flier and parasitic 8-legged creature like ticks and bugs are classified as vectors.

Dengue is one of the most infectious vector borne disease that results due to mosquito bite. This virus is closely ….to the virus that causes yellow fever and West Nile Infection. Through epidemiological studies, it has been proved that dengue is dependent on the factor of temperature, specifically in the urban areas. Hence, climate change is one of the major reasons that spreads this vector borne disease. The occurrence of this disease mostly takes place in tropical regions of the world. These include Southeast Asia, Mexico………………………Continued (06 Pages with References)
