They were of the view that the Wolbachia bacteria would be able to safeguard people from the effect of the dengue bacteria. For the same research, there was a proportion of this bacteria introduced in the mosquito population of the northern part of Queensland last year.

There has been a rise in these bacteria infected quantity of mosquitoes, by 3% in Babinda, and by 8% in the Machans Beach.

It was revealed by Professor Ary Hoffman, that the wMelPop strain of the bacteria was being used by the researchers. This particular strain tends to spread slower than the Gordonsvale and the Yorkeys Knob version of the disease.

“The strain that we released last year seems to have spread more easily. It's certainly a strategy that has a huge potential to be implemented in countries where dengue is endemic”, he said.

The good part is that this bacterium doesn’t seem to have any negative impact o the health of humans. There is need or developing some sort of vaccination against the disease with the help of these bacteria. It might be able to safeguard humans from the onset of the disease for a long time. It might prove as a very good tool in preventing dengue, which might be potentially fatal at times.

There is need for further efforts to be made in this regard before a potential cure can be found with the help of these bacteria.
