The breeding section at the World Mosquito Program (WMP) in Brazil produces mosquitoes that carry Wolbachia
bacteria, which reduces their ability to transmit viruses such as Zika, dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever. Wolbachia are naturally occurring bacteria found in 60% of all insect species and are safe for humans, animals and the environment.• The winner of the 2019
Wellcome photography prize will be announced on 3 July, and will be on show with the shortlisted entries and Adrienne Surprenant’s commission at the
Lethaby Gallery London N1C, from 4-13 July 2019.
