Hamilton wins in Hungary to stretch F1 title lead
Lewis Hamilton won the Hungarian Grand Prix from pole position on Sunday to extend his championship lead over Sebastian Vettel . On arguably the most hard track for overtaking in F1 after Monaco, it greatly reduced Vettel's hopes of finishing second.

The majority of people infected will show no symptoms, while a smaller number (around 20 percent) will experience fevers, headaches, body aches, nausea, and vomiting. No humans have been affected by the virus-borne mosquitoes.

Sheeley says wet, swampy areas are the ideal conditions for mosquitoes to breed, and spread disease. He began exhibiting symptoms of the infection and was hospitalized, but he has since been discharged and is recovering at home. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, and IR3535 are effective. Although it may be hard to do when it's hot, wearing long-sleeves, long trousers and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin. Larvicide can help reduce mosquito populations in areas where standing water cannot be eliminated through traditional drainage methods.
