Cuba retakes dengue battle

Cuba has begun its second national campaign against the Aedes Aegypti mosquito, the dengue transmitting agent, a defensive operation to preserve human lives.

The Committees for the Defense of the Revolution, in coordination with local residents, will carry out hygienic-health tasks to avoid mosquito propagation, including the cleaning up of dumps and green areas, Granma daily reported.

These efforts guarantee the control of possible breeding grounds for the Aedes Aegypti mosquito, which has caused so many problems in different countries.

The first campaign was held May 4-6.
