Dengue since its inception has taken a toll on people all over the world. Death angel dengue could not be combated since long-long time, but at last french, pharmaceutical Sanofi flogged the deadly dengue with its first of a kind vaccine, Dengvaxia. More than 22,000 people, according to The World Health organization, are shown deathbeds by the reaper ‘Dengue’. Invention of this vaccine indeed comes as a great respite. India itself struggles a lot with dengue cases, accounting to some 85,000 cases this year.
Newly manufactured vaccine has been tested on around 29,000 people around the globe. To start with, Mexico declares its 40,000 people to be subjected to this vaccine and highlights itself as the first country to wrestle with Dengue. As decreed, vaccine will only be served to children above the age nine and adults falling under the age 49.
Sanfoi has really created a solid impression with such much-needed invention.
