Journalist Olimpia Alvarez of the Telecorporación Salvadoreña “TCS” learned how to combat dengue while documenting the work of the Comandos at the Instituto Nacional Francisco Morazán in San Salvador. Olimpia wanted to give her viewers a taste of what it is like to work as a comando eradicating mosquitos that carry the dengue virus. Dengue can become a problem when stagnant water creates a perfect habitat for mosquito larvae to grow and multiply. Comandos continue to donate their time to improve preventive public healthcare by offering this free service of fumigation via their “Vectores” “zancudo combat crew”. Fotos CDS.
