Pupal index (PI) as a reliable tool for assessing adult population and prediction of dengue epidemic (DF/DHF)

Author(s): Kaleb Raja Kumar, Bhoopathy K and Philip Samuel
Abstract: Objective of this study is to evaluate the pupal productivity (a close proximity of adult population) and to correlate the onset and transmission of dengue fever in the study areas. This Pupal Index (PI) tool is accurate, dependable and comparable, if viruses are found in asymptomatic population. Epidemiologically, pupae per person have been proposed as a measure of entomological risk for DENV transmission.
