LG Announced Its Mosquito Away TV


 Malaria has been a problem in India for many centuries, just as it is in Africa. According to the World Health Organisation(WHO) ,The hilly, wooded landscapes of India’s north and north-eastern states and the nomadic nature of many of its tribal groups contribute to the high number of malaria cases in that region of the country.Some 80% of the malaria cases reported in India occur in these states which are home to only 20% of the population. Internal conflicts and increasing population mobility pose additional challenges to eliminating malaria in the region.

Despite these challenges, India is working – and making progress towards the elimination of malaria. Since 2000, the country has more than halved the number of malaria cases, down from 2 million to 882 000 in 2013. And, the trend is continuing.

However, there is a bit of relief as electronic giant, LG  announced its Mosquito Away line of TVs for the country. The TV uses an ultra sonic device which generates sound wave at certain wavelength which is inaudible to humans but unbearable to mosquitoes.
The technology complies with the norms of global organizations and has been tested by International Institute of Biotechnology and Toxicology (IIBAT), India as well. This technology does not use any chemicals, used in other toxic repellents, nor does it require refilling or any other maintenance and the most important part of the technology is that this independent operation which does not require the TV to be on to make the mosquitoes fly away, LG said.
After studying the Indian market, the South Korean company concluded there was no device of this kind that addressed the growing medical and hygienic issue of mosquitoes in the country. The Mosquito Away TV models do not release any harmful radiation, nor do they use chemicals .
The cheapest model, featuring a 32-inch display cost $400(N80,000) while the top-of-the-line 43-inch is priced at  $710 (N142,000).
