A promising start to our research in Vietnam

After releasing mosquitoes with the wMelPop strain of Wolbachia once a week for four weeks on Tri Nguyen island our monitoring tells us that over 30% of mosquitoes on the island now carry Wolbachia.

This is a promising start to the trial, but it is still early days for our research in Vietnam. We will continue with the weekly releases on Tri Nguyen Island and provide updates on our progress directly to householders and stakeholders.
