Video: Bill Gates narrates "Defeating Dengue" with Wolbachia
This week Bill Gates appropriately labelled mosquitoes the most dangerous animals in the world in this blog post. The nearly two-minute long video below is narrated by Gates, who explains how Wolbachia researchers in the Eliminate Dengue project have been aggressively infecting mosquitoes with Wolbachia bacteria and releasing the mosquitoes into areas where dengue virus is a significant problem. "Wolbachia blocks the disease…It has a very good chance of success", Gates says.
