80 Percent Population Is At Risk Of Mosquito Borne Diseases, WHO Took Steps For Prevention

80 percent of the world's population is at risk of one or more mosquito (vector) borne diseases. To prevent this, the World Health Organization (WHO) has issued a new manual regarding indoor pesticide spraying (IRS).

According to the report, mosquitoes, flies, insects and others spread viruses, parasites and bacteria. Due to this, millions of people around the world get infected.

According to the report, WHO recommends two vector control methods for large-scale use to curb malaria. First, insecticide treated nets and second, spraying insecticides inside the house. Under this, pesticides are sprayed inside houses and other buildings.

According to the WHO report, mosquito-borne diseases are more prevalent due to poverty and mortality rates are often very high in poor populations. Those who somehow survive these diseases are left permanently disabled or disfigured.

Sprinkler coverage – protecting as many people as possible and with special emphasis on protecting vulnerable groups. Acceptance – spraying a larger number of units and structures, so that the pesticide can have a greater impact. Efficiency: It should also be ensured that the campaign is completed on time and effective spraying is done in as many houses as possible every day.
