In order to combat zika virus spread with the help of mosquito Aedes Aegepty, Google’s parent company called Alphabet do research and make a tool to penetrate mosquitoes. The tool is special because it only incites the mosquito with the type of stud and barren.
Millions of mosquitoes that are spread every week can not fertilize the female mosquitoes of virus spread of zikis and dengue fever. Alphabet Company has released 20 million genetically engineered mosquitoes in the area of Fresno County, California.
Research conducted by Google’s parent company is a way to combat the dangerous infectious diseases that are currently disturbing some countries affected by the outbreak. From the results of research, ensuring female mosquitoes can not hatch new mosquito seeds.
Reported by futurism.com page, the project is the biggest field test that has been held so far. 20 million male mosquitoes are released, according to the researchers, will not bite humans because the only bite is a female mosquito.
Alphabet only distributes the device to the needy territory, says engineer engineer, Linus Upson.
“Distribute it where they should be placed, and measure their population,” explains Linus.
Engineering in this mosquito population is claimed to have no environmental impact at all, so it will continue to be done and developed to prevent dangerous diseases caused by mosquitoes.
