Vietnam releases dengue-blocking mosquito

In this photo taken on Sept. 1, 2013, scientist Simon Kutcher, project manager of the Eliminate Dengue Vietnam research program, blood feeds a cage of mosquitoes in a lab in Hanoi, Vietnam. The mosquitoes are being reared with Wolbachia bacteria that works as a natural vaccine to keep them from becoming infected with the virus that causes dengue. They were released on an island as part of research to help determine whether the bacteria can help in the fight against the disease.
