HONDURAS-HEALTH-DISEASE-DENGUE

Schoolgirls wash a drinking fountain at their school as part of a Health Ministry campaign focused on mosquito control in order to combat dengue fever, a disease caused by four strains of virus that are spread by the mosquito Aedes aegypti, in Tegucigalpa on July 8, 2013. Authorities have issued dengue alerts in four nations across Central America, where alarm is rising as the mosquito-borne disease has infected 30,000 people and killed 17 this year alone. The illness can be fatal, developing into hemorrhagic fever, which can lead to shock and internal bleeding. AFP PHOTO / Orlando SIERRA (Photo credit should read ORLANDO SIERRA/AFP/Getty Images)
