WORLD MOSQUITO DAY

 

Day-of-Mosquito-ver-2.0-Wha

 

Yesterday, 20 August was World Mosquito Day. It is on August 20, 1897, that the British doctor, Sir Ronald Ross made the historic link that the female mosquitoes spread malaria.

Mosquito is one of the challenges that the modern world has to face. Is there anybody who hasn’t experienced a mosquito bite? There may be nobody; it is all there to disturb you as a nuisance and as a threat. Earlier, mosquito bites were ignored simply, but when it was discovered that, they are the transmitters of many deadly diseases, it became a threat. They are the carriers of all the killer viruses of malaria, dengue fever and chicken guinea. Each one is spread by the distinct variety. Some are found in fresh water and some are found in everywhere. Pleasant and sunny climate is good for its breeding. The eggs may remain in the soil or blocked water for long and when it becomes sunny it will turn out as mosquitoes to bite us.

We may be trying every method to keep away the nuisance, mainly because of our fear of these diseases. We have to protect our young kids from the mosquito bites. Some are trying creams, some are closing each hole, window and ventilator and doors  with nets to stop the mosquitoes from entering into our homes. But when we go to the bus stop or railway station or when we want to travel late in the evening, there is the mosquito with its stinging needle. Hygiene, both personal and public, is the only technique to escape from the mosquitoes. It should start from each one of us. We should keep our rooms, houses and the surrounding areas clean. Water should be drained away, bushes should be removed and the waste should be managed properly. The government should conduct awareness programs and the organizations should take initiatives to clean up the slums. It is the only way to rescue the world from the deadly disease spread by mosquitoes. We can do it, we must do it, it is the responsibility of each citizen to keep the surrounding clean and clear.
