Fighting Dengue Fever With The Help Of A Mosquito Parasite

Fighting Dengue Fever With The Help Of A Mosquito Parasite: "Dengue fever is a terrible viral disease blighting many of the world's tropical regions. Carried by mosquitoes, such as Aedes aegypti, 40% of the world's population is believed to be at risk from the infection. What is more, previous exposure to other strains of the fever does not confer protection. In fact, subsequent infections are significantly worse, and can result in fatal dengue haemorrhagic fever."
