100 experts gathered in Singapore to combat mosquito-borne virus

More than on mosquito-borne viruses gathered in Singapore on Wednesday to discuss how to combat the disease, which has put several Asian nations on alert following a raft of infections.

Experts at the three-day Asian Dengue conference were expected to discuss the genetics of the Aedes mosquito and whether the insect has boosted its immunity to traditional methods of pest control.

Several Southeast Asian countries have declared war on dengue. Singapore's 2005 infection rate has already far surpassed its previous high of 9,459 set last year. There have been 11 fatalities, also a record.

Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines have also issued health advisories and warnings, reports the AP.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
