At times, the unfortunate thing about the rainy season is that the risk of getting infected with mosquitoes -borne diseases like dengue, chikungunya, and malaria increases. It may be life-threatening if not treated timely. Thus, it makes it extremely important for you to know these monsoon health tips along with the best health insurance policy for yourself and your family to prevent vector-borne diseases. Let's get into some more vital details:

These are the organisms that carry pathogens and parasites from one infected person to another. There is an overwhelming impact of such mosquito-borne diseases on developing countries like India.

Climatic changes, especially rains, growing urbanization, and new agricultural methods, cause such mosquitoes-borne diseases.
