Mosquito Warning!

The number of children born with microcephaly in Brazil has been increasing recently, and this is thought to be linked to the Zika virus. Further, there was an outbreak of dengue fever in Japan in the summer of 2014, for the first time in 70 years.


In order to protect ourselves against these infectious diseases, it is important to take care to avoid mosquito bites, as well as reducing the mosquito population. It is particularly important that care is taken when visiting Brazil, the Philippines, and other countries with reported outbreaks.
