Commentary: I am practising in Punjab, and seeing the impact of Dengue cases in the tricity of Chandigarh, Panchkula & Mohali, I believe that a vaccine for Dengue, though still far away. is going to be a very important addition to our fight against this deadly disease. In the meantime, steps to curb the mosquito population needs to be taken in earnest, by the public at large, and health authorities to decrease the incidence of this & other mosquito borne diseases.
