Im happy to read good news for a chance. I am wondering if these efforts already resulted to a decrease in the number of documented cases of dengue. Also, does it have an effect on decreasing complications and morbidity from the disease. Dengue fever remains to be a problem in our country.

But nevertheless, congrat...

Dengue cases has been growing in number in Asian countries during the past few months especially here in the Philippines. The vaccine needed for dengue should be approved and released to the public as soon as we can. Dengue has shown to be somewhat the same in census of the new trend of Zika Virus affecting all ages. Dengue is viral in nature in which it does not need any antibiotics but only constant monitoring of their cbc, hematocrit and platelet counts, probiotics and multivitamins. Reinforc...
