It occupied all sections of the region

However, the red alert is immediately alarming. What should be done concretely? “Realizing it’s not very clear. Several mosquitoes are scratched, acknowledges Isabel Esteve Mocion, vector control coordinator for the regional health agency in Occitanie. But this is really gray and white.

The mosquito stock that appears in this season will not be able to transmit because it will not be contaminated.
