Epidemic Prevention / prevent disease

Epidemic Prevention

Global warming exposes the world to the risk of mosquito-carried diseases, e.g. zika virus. The way to prevent it is to keep mosquitoes away and early treatment. For places with poor sanitation and lack of preventive measures, bathrooms are where vector mosquitoes thrive.
A tree gum test paper featuring mosquito killing and disease screening is designed for bathroom use. When a user goes to the bathroom, he urinates on the test paper to dissolve it for quick urine screen and early disease discovery, and the insecticide contained is released to kill mosquitoes.
Epidemic prevention provides quick screen for epidemics and stops further spreading
