Promoting Mosquito Repellent



On a November 2015 trip to Africa, Pope Francis was asked if he was worried for his safety during an upcoming visit to Kenya. The journalist was referring to recent attacks that specifically targeted Christians. Pope Francis replied,

There are good and bad people. To tell you the truth, the only thing I’m worried about are mosquitoes. I hope you carried your mosquito repellents.

Indeed. With Malaria, Dengue, Zika, West Nile and other diseases carried by mosquitoes in Africa, using mosquito repellent is a wise choice.
