Long Island public officials called on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to spend more money and resources to help prevent the spread of the Asian Tiger mosquito on Monday. The tropical mosquito is a carrier of the deadly Dengue virus. The request to the C-D-C comes despite the fact that only one Long Islander has contracted the virus. That was last November.
