  6. Well mosquito has always been a problem for south Asian countries and India is no exception from that.
    But recently we have a very good news that our neighbor Srilanka have been declared a malaria free country from WHO.
    So until we get to such a day in India we need to take precautions by using different mosquito repellent lotions , mats, nets etc and for children who are most vulnerable we can use mosquito repellent bands which are quite effective like the one which i use for my child “healthbuddy mosquito repellent band”
