Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes in the USA Florida Keys

- One of the controversial projects in which a place to release genetically modified mosquitoes in Florida Key is to reduce the disease originating from the Aedes Aegypti mosquito.

The United States government has reportedly approved the release of millions of genetically modified mosquitoes by scientists. The mosquitoes that are genetically engineered and will be released in key Florida reach 750 million mosquitoes. The engineering results made by these scientists are not dangerous, it will have a very important mission, which is to reduce and reduce the population of Aedes Aegypti name.

We all know that the Aedes Aegyptus mosquito is a very dangerous mosquito, like dengue fever.

The genetically engineered mosquitoes that have been modified are in six locations such as one at Diramrod Key, three others in Vaca Key, and two more in Cudjoe Key. As previously planned, the genetically engineered mosquito repellent will involve as many as 750 million modified tails. And this will be deployed in the Florida Key Islands from 2021 to 2022.

However, several related parties said that the release agreement would also trigger a pandemic copied -19 crisis.

The copied-19 pandemic crisis has urged all countries especially the Florida part, resulting in racial injustice, so that the government has used government resources and tax dollars for the 'Jurassic park experiment'.

In May, a British biotech company that has been granted permission from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to produce a genetically engineered male Aedes aegypti mosquito will be tested. By doing this, Oxitec scientists also hope that this can reduce and reduce the population of the Aedes aegypti mosquito in the country of Florida Keys and that the spread of this disease is expected to be reduced.

Oxitec scientists explain that they have found positive results by conducting trials conducted on the Brazilian field. This is why Oxitec scientists will continue the plan to spread these genetically modified mosquitoes to Texas starting in 2021. Scientists are also working harder to always protect the public from diseases originated from the Aedes Aegypti mosquito.

But unfortunately, the release of this mosquito has pros and cons, Aedes Aegypti often invades the southern part of Florida. However, these mosquitoes can also be found in urban areas, especially in places that are flooded with water. However, the BBC has also explained that these are also found in other areas, one of which is the Florida Keys area. The Aedes aegypti mosquito has developed resistance to pesticides.
