Dengue fever now threatens 2.5b people and is endemic in 110 countries.

Warmer weather also pleases the mosquitos that spread Dengue fever, a sometimes fatal disease that has recoded a 30x increase in cases in 50 years. Up to 500m people suffer Dengue. Getting it once is bad, but a second infection from the day-time biting mosquitos can cause dengue hemorrhagic fever, dengue shock syndrome – and death.

And there is, as yet, no vaccine on the market.
