June 23, 2016: LG Electronics has come up with an innovative way to fight with mosquito-related diseases in India. With the aim to control malaria, dengue, Zika and other mosquito-related diseases in India, LG has come up with a new LED TV. The TV includes a unique feature, aptly known as ‘Mosquito Away Technology’ that uses ultrasonic waves to keep the mosquitoes away.
In India, more than 40,000 people die every year due to malaria infections. In 2015, 16,000 cases of dengue were reported in New Delhi, the capital of the nation, according to World Health Organization (WHO). Hence, it is extremely important to control mosquito populations and avoid bites in order to stay away from such deadly diseases.
