Bug repellent distributed to fight dengue epidemic

Residents of Limón have free containers of insect repellent as part of the national campaign against dengue and the mosquito that carries the virus.

The repellent came from Compañía Farmacéutica S.A and the samples were the first of some 50,000 that will be distributed around the county in 10 areas with high incidence of dengue.

El Diario Extra, the Spanish-language newspaper, also is involved in the distribution. More than 30,000 Costa Ricans have been treated for dengue this year.
