Since fiscal 2011, we have been conducting periodic mosquito-borne monitoring surveys on mosquito-borne infections, including dengue and chikungunya.
From 2015, we have added a place to conduct the program from the viewpoints of "many users," "many tourists visit," and "many events are held."
In fiscal 2019, with the holding of the Rugby World Cup 2019 TM and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the number of research locations around both competition venues has been expanded.
Viruses have never been detected in mosquitoes we have investigated so far.
