Mosquito Threat

Speaking about invasive mosquitoes, Yuvam World Climate Clinic Scientific Board Member Prof. Dr. Mine Durusu Tanrıöver stated that temperature increases cause mosquitoes to reproduce faster, fly longer distances, bite more and the pathogens they carry multiply faster. As we continue to experience the effects of the climate crisis and the resulting health risks more and more every day, record-breaking temperatures were recorded in July and ocean temperatures reached the highest level in the last 125,000 years, according to recorded time period data. The radicalisation of climate change threatens our health through various effects such as the spread of invasive mosquito species as well as extreme heat. "The Asian tiger mosquito is the most invasive and aggressive mosquito species," Tanrıöver said about the Asian tiger mosquito, which is also on the national agenda.
