Two consecutive nights of aerial pesticide spraying last week in some stretches of Dallas and its suburbs reduced the number of mosquitos carrying the virus by 93%, David Lakey, MD, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services, said today in a press briefing held by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Successful eradication of the disease-bearing insect was good news in an otherwise dismal update of the outbreak provided by the CDC and Texas, the state with the most infections and deaths.
