Keeping Away from Dengue-causing Mosquitoes

After I read a news about the dengue cases increasing and noted by the DOH, I became kind of freak to keep away myself from dengue-causing mosquitoes. In fact, I hurriedly bought anti-mosquito spray and mosquito repellents. I even thought of installing bar clamps in the windows of my comfort room. Oh, not really those big once, maybe I can make use of the smaller clamps. Oh wait, not clamps, but window screen shields. That’s what I mean. Haha!

Anyway, I just hope that these dengue-causing mosquitoes will not cause more casualties in the country.
