Use of mosquito nets should be encouraged in rural areas
People caring for the society and community can do well to revisit the problems faced by the society because of mosquitoes. Some of the diseases transmitted by mosquitoes are malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, eastern equine encephalitis and some more. These diseases at times prove to be lethal challenging the life of the affected person. One of the common platforms where mosquitoes breed and thrive is water logging areas.

A good portion of the Indian population lives in different villages in different parts of the country. Water logging is a common sight in many of the villages and therefore presence of different types of mosquitoes can be felt in villages.

Concerned group of people can do well to encourage craftsmen (including those making furniture and engineering cast iron fittings) for coming out with an economy kind of mosquito fitted cot which can be conveniently used for getting sound and hassle free sleep. Whatever laws existing in this regard, if any, should be amended to the extent that it directly or indirectly encourages people living in villages to use such cots fitted with mosquito nets while sleeping.

Such a move will enormously help the society in overcoming many of the diseases due to mosquito bites faced by people especially living in rural areas. The pricing of the cot fitted with mosquito net should be so economically prized that an intended person living in rural area does not feel any pinch while buying such cots.

Also, organizations and associations that want to do something good for the society can seize the above issue as a good opportunity and do everything to ensure that such mosquito net fitted cots are nicely made in big numbers and are freely distributed to as many people living in rural areas as possible.

The health aspect of people living in rural areas will certainly take a boost for the better once they begin to sleep in mosquito net fitted cot on a daily basis. Concerned people should do everything to make this a reality.
