Dengue Fever Mosquitoes Attacking U.S. From Florida to California

dengue1_20100304    Global Warming (i.e. Climate Change) now invites Dengue Fever into the U.S. in full force.  This mosquito-borne disease has especially hit Texas and other parts of the South West, invaded Florida, and now even reaches to California.

Eric Wuestewald reveals in ‘Why Dengue and Yellow Fever Could Be Coming to a City Near You’:  “This past summer, Aedes aegypti—the invasive African mosquito best known for carrying the potentially deadly diseases Dengue and Yellow Fevers—made its unexpected debut in California, squirming up from Madera to Clovis to Fresno and the Bay Area.”

Only resulting from infected mosquitoes, Dengue Fever cannot transfer from person to person. This disease was once erased in the U.S. through preventive education and controlled insecticide spraying. But after 60 years, the danger returns.

In ‘Dengue Fever Presence in Florida at a Pretty Serious Level,’ Patricia Sagastume says recently the Florida Department of Health found affected patients suffered bites from infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.  Now health workers find these types of mosquitoes in 30% of the homes in one Florida location.

Two Texas Tech University researchers conclude “that Climate Change would shift rather than increase the risk for Dengue outbreaks in the United States,” and that the disease will probably become something “the U.S. must learn to live with as Climate Change creates opportunities for the disease to flourish.”

However, Florida residents prefer to look at human causes, such as fresh waters in St. Lucie Rivers and Indian River Lagoons polluted by agricultural runoffs, resulting in miles “of slimy green algae blooms that have killed fish, oysters, crabs, sea grasses and other marine life in the waterways.”

In the agency’s 2012 report, the World Health Organization (WHO) writes:  “. . .  temperatures, precipitation and humidity have a strong influence on the reproduction, survival and biting rates” of Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes.  Before 2009, Florida had not seen a Dengue outbreak in over 70 years.

This disease’s early symptoms seem like the flu, but as it advances it can cause harsh stomach pain, nose and mouth Dengue-Fever-Symptomsbleeding, and even lung and heart problems.  A possible life-threatening sickness, Dengue Fever kills 15,000 people in some 100 countries every year.  As of yet there is no vaccine against it!

Along with medical check-ups, vitamins, healthy eating and expert doctors, Americans must put more emphasis on prayer for God’s protection from disease.  These deadly mosquitoes are the devil’s work shop.  So pray for God’s instruments to use against the enemy:  “Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked (Ephesians 6: 16).”

Plus size Christian sweatshirts avow:  “And they overcame him by the blood of The Lamb, and by the word of their testimony (Revelation 12: 11).”  Believers must look to The LORD Jesus as The Great Physician:  “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease (Matthew 4: 23).”
