Mosquitos remain one of the biggest threats to the health of humans. With this, Google and SC Johnson’s OFF! decided to team up to build the OFF!Cast Mosquito Forecast tool that can give predictions about mosquito outbreaks. It was launched on Google Cloud across the United States on May 5th and will soon be available to other markets, such as Brazil and Mexico.
According to a study, mosquitoes infect over 700 million people yearly across the globe with different diseases like Zika, Malaria, Dengue Fever, and Yellow Fever. While completely eradicating the problems is almost impossible due to the unceasing presence of the said insects everywhere, prevention of the said diseases is possible. OFF!Cast Mosquito Forecast will guide people in understanding their population in a specific location.
