The President of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla, speaks to students of the Napoleon Quesada secondary school before joining them to clear the school yard to eliminate possible breeding sources for the Aedes aegypti mosquito that carries the virus which causes dengue, as part of the 'National Educational Crusade Against Dengue', in San Jose, on August 19, 2013. An unusually potent outbreak of dengue fever had killed at least 26 people and infected nearly 40,000 more in 2013 by July in Central America, where the mosquito-born illness is endemic. The t-shirt reads 'The Napo (Napoleon Quesada secondary school) Against Dengue'. AFP PHOTO/Hector RETAMAL (Photo credit should read HECTOR RETAMAL/AFP/Getty Images)
