For those who remember the always diligent but often controversial Richard Donaldson-Alves who passed away in January 2012, I post this link in his honor. Richard was among other things, a scientist who worked in the Thai jungle studying tropical diseases, many of which are transmitted by mosquitoes.
Dengue fever was one of his areas of study. The Thai government has released details of a possible successful vaccine which has been developed and is almost ready for human trials.
Vaccine expected in five years - The Nation
Richard is fondly remembered and may soon be owed a debt of thanks by millions around the world. He was a medical doctor, professor, promoter of all things sailing and a founder of the Asia sail net, MMNETSEA.
PS. This warning from the past, from Richard, is even more noteworthy today as incidences of Dengue becomes more prevalent as time goes by.
Good on ya Mate.
