Outbreak of dengue fever brings insecticides

An outbreak of dengue fever in Northern India has prompted officials to spray insecticide to kill mosquitoes and hopefully contain the disease. The outbreak has drawn criticism in regards to the inadequate public health services in the region.

I'm sure everyone is crossing their fingers that this spraying will prevent further cases of dengue fever, I only hope that the long term effects of this direct exposure to the mosquito killer, won't also become another human killer. (AP photo via the NYTimes).


  • Reminds me of when the city sprays for West Nile. That's a disturbing photo.
