New India-made weapon against mosquitoes: Nano-carbon

Haryana and Punjab Toxic smog have not yet been reported to occur in the National Capital Region (NCR). And the zika virus, spread by Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes, has mysteriously raised its head in Rajasthan and has infected more than 90 people and worrying health officials. Sabyasachi Sarkar, visiting professor and nano-technologists at the Indian Institute of Science and Technology (IIEST) in Shibpur, West Bengal, has proposed a single solution to solve these twin problems. The novel method has been reported in a recent issue of the Journal of Vector Borne Diseases.
