Effective reduction of standing water requires full community support.
The indoor-dwel ing Asian tiger mosquitoes are not the same as the ones that live outside.
Because Asian mosquitoes feed all day long, bed nets aren't very effective in controlling them.

There are yet to be effective antiviral drugs.
There are some diseases that are considered new or emerging.
It was imported into Europe.
The blood clotting system is disrupted by them.
After a few days the victim has a high temperature and begins to breathe, but the antiviral ribavirin is not recommended because of its value and bleeding.
External openings such as the nose and eyes can be the cause of diseases.
Death is a part of history in Asia and Europe.
In a few days, it is best known for organ failure and shock.
In 1969 all of these diseases were transmitted to Africa.
There are at least 14 known human infections.
Thousands of cases of Lassa fever have been reported.
The fruit bat, which is used as food and is not affected by the virus it carries, is the natural host for the virus.
