Expert: scientific prevention and control, comprehensive prevention and control
In terms of mosquito control, in recent years, vector control, as an important basic work in the construction of a healthy China, has made considerable progress. The National Health Commission said in its reply that there were 1097 national vector monitoring points, forming a "three in one" monitoring network for the ecology, etiology and drug resistance of mosquito and other vector organisms, providing scientific basis for risk assessment, prediction and early warning, control planning, etc. of mosquitoes and mosquito borne infectious diseases, as well as decision-making basis for scientific selection of mosquito control insecticides.
Ge Feng believes that comprehensive prevention and control measures should be taken against mosquitoes, which are highly harmful to human beings. Environmental management should be the main measure, supplemented by drug control. Environmental management is an important part of prevention and control. Mosquitoes must grow and multiply under appropriate environmental conditions. For example, larvae must live in water. If environmental habitats are transformed and breeding grounds are cleared, larvae cannot grow.
The reporter noted that in recent years, the National Health Commission, together with the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and other departments, has deployed and carried out several rounds of patriotic health special actions nationwide, guiding all regions to clean up mosquito breeding sites, improve human settlements, reduce the density of mosquito and other vectors from the source, and prevent and control the spread of mosquito borne infectious diseases.
For individuals, Ge Feng suggested that physical control measures should be used to avoid mosquitoes. This includes paying attention to personal hygiene, installing screens and mosquito nets at home, wearing more protective clothing when going out, and using some insect repellent products such as balm, which are good protective measures. Scientific use of mosquito control products is also an important means.
"Mosquitoes really pose a great threat to human beings and are important vectors for spreading viruses. Therefore, how to prevent and control them scientifically to reduce the harm to human beings, especially to reduce the spread of diseases without affecting the entire ecosystem, is a problem we should consider in the future." Ge Feng said.
