Introduction: Dengue is the most widely dispersed mosquito-borne illness, and infected Aedes species mosquitoes convey it. The four dengue virus serotypes (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN-4) of the Flavivirus genus cause dengue infection in humans. According to the WHO classification from 1997, there are three different types of symptomatic dengue virus infection: dengue fever (DF), dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), and dengue shock syndrome (DSS). Dengue fever is prevalent in more than 100 nations, with the majority of cases coming from the WHO’s Western Pacific, South-east Asia, and Americas areas.
Methods: This retrospective analytical study was done using the Global Burden of Disease Compare (GBD Compare) tool, where the data of Madhya-Pradesh and Chhattisgarh State for the five-year duration from year 2013 to year 2017 was collected. Factors studied included Dengue Mortality as a percentage of total-all-cause mortalities, its range, and annual percent change (APC).
Result: Despite of resonating year-wise results of percentage of total all cause mortalities in MP (0.17, 0.34, 0.19, 0.35, 0.21%) and Chhattisgarh (0.17, 0.38, 0.19, 0.39, 0.21%), there is alarming difference of APC in MP (2.702, 6.11, 2.72, 6.11, 2.72%) and Chhattisgarh (4.19, 4.75, 4.19%,4.75%,4.19%). The mortality and its range are proportionate to APC in MP, whereas APC is found high despite of the mortalities of dengue being same in MP and Chhattisgarh.
Conclusion: Addressing the complexities of morbidity and mortality trends requires a multifaceted approach that considers age, gender, and regional differences. By doing so, researchers can contribute to a more nuanced understanding of disease profiles, paving the way for targeted interventions and policies that address the specific health needs of diverse populations.
