In a groundbreaking trial, the cases of dengue fever have been cut by 77% in a ‘groundbreaking trial’ that manipulates the mosquitoes that spread it.

According to details, the scientists used the mosquitoes infected with "miraculous" bacteria that limit the insect's ability to spread dengue.

The trial took place in Indonesia’s in Yogyakarta city and is being expanded in the hope of limiting the impacts of the virus.

The scientists believe that the experiment could be a solution to a virus that has gone around the world.

In 1970, only nine countries had countries experienced dengue outbreaks, now there are up to 400 million infections a year.

It is pertinent to mention that dengue virus is spread by the mosquito bite after which the patient faces extreme deficiency of platelets and his blood loses normal clotting ability.

Dengue virus is life-threatening and can lead to dengue hemorrhagic fever if not treated timely.

Fever may lead to bleeding, blood plasma leakage or dangerously low blood pressure.
