Mosquito Control- the way to prevent many epidemics.

The health dangers spread by mosquitoes-

India is experiencing major health threats every year from mosquito borne diseases, in this country. While the dengue outbreak in Delhi has hit the national headlines, little attention has been given to equally worrying data from states such as Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, which between them account for almost half of India’s 22,079 dengue cases till September 13, the last day till when country-wide data is available.

Mosquito-borne diseases including chikungunya, dengue, malaria and Japanese encephalitis cases has been on the rise across the country, with chikungunya recording 300%, the highest, increase in cases between 2012-2015.Meanwhile, dengue cases increased 157%, followed by Japanese encephalitis cases clocking 124% rise, according to National Health Profile 2017 report.

Chikungunya cases showed a declining trend until 2012, when it recorded the lowest number of cases that is 15,977. Thereafter, the numbers surged drastically to 58,264, according to the 2016 (provisional) data.With death toll rising following the rapid spread of mosquito-borne diseases in the country, India’s success in achieving its target to eliminate these diseases seems unclear.
