Hope is what keeps to world going – without hope – I just cannot imagine a life without hope
In order to spread, Dengue requires the right mosquito vector. And the two species best suited to transmit the virus are the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, which also can spread such diseases as West Nile, Malaria, Yellow Fever, and Chikungunya.
While the Aedes Aegypti isn’t a problem in Japan, the Aedes Albopictus (`Asian Tiger’) mosquito is.
Frieden, in his WSB Radio interview, warned that failure to control the outbreak could be catastrophic.
“This isn’t just a risk to Liberia and West Africa,” Frieden said. “With this kind of transmission, every day it goes on, it increases the risk of spread to other countries in Africa, other countries in the region.
“The impact not just from Ebola but on the delivery of healthcare, on economies, on families and societies. It’s huge. It’s absolutely an emergency.”
