Pinoy Manila recently attended the “Breakthroug Findings on Dengue Lamok” presscon held at the Promenade Restaurant, G Hotel Roxas Boulevard Manila.
The event was graced by Green Cross brand managers, Philippine Association on Entomologist (PAE) secretary, and friends from media.
Filipino entomologist Dr. Barabara Lavina Caoili discussed the Dengue-lamok attacks during the day at night. She informed us that a dengue lamok species (dengue-carrying mosquitoes) bite not only during the day but night as well.

According to Dr. Caoili, the presence of both Ae aegypti and Ae albopictus in places where people live will make dengue a round- the-clock threat.
In 2011, a total of 110, 257 cases of dengue were reported, resulting in the deaths of 580 people. Twenty-five percent (25%) of the total dengue cases in Metro Manila.
With all these dengue threat, there’s a level up protection that will fight day and night dengue lamok-introducing the new
