In a recent study of Harvard University’s school of public health saying from now we can detect the deadly dengue virus which is attacking the people due to the climate change. Experts are saying that they can predict the location and timing of dengue epidemics. The researchers invented a new trick with the help of the largest data set of mobile phone records from Pakistan.
One of the senior researcher added, “Accurate predictive models identifying changing vulnerability to dengue outbreaks are necessary for epidemic preparedness and containment of the virus, Because mobile phone data are continuously being collected, they could be used to help national control programmes plan in near real time.Around 40 million users are guided with the calls and aggregated. The countries mobility partners ordered to predict the geographical spread. “Lead author Amy Wesolowski said that because mobile phone data were continuously being collected, they could be used to help national control programs plan in near real time.
On the other hand in India, Delhi crossed the 1000 mark, so far 1259 cases are being registered.
