In this chapter, a comparative study on dengue is made on different parameters. The parameters involved in dengue and spread of this disease are identified, and the prevention parameters are concluded. The major benefits of this comparative study are to identify the parameters which are inconclusive, applying the concept of FCM and NCM are applied to bring out the result.

16.1 Introduction

The bite of a mosquito which carries infected Aedes species remains the cause of spreading dengue viruses. These mosquitoes also spread few other viruses like chikungunya, zika, etc. Nearly 50% of the population around the world lives with the risk of getting affected by dengue. Almost 400 million people gets infected with the disease every year. Around 40,000 people lose their life by this dangerous disease [13].

One of the four viruses dengue, virus 1, 2, 3, 4, remains the reason for the spread of the disease. Because ...
