Patna: A Switzerland-based company on Friday launched an insecticidal bed net and community water filter in Patna to fight against diseases like Dengue, Malaria and Diarrhoea.
 
The community water filter has a capacity to filter 100 lakh litres, director of Vestergaard Satish Kumar told reporters in Patna. He said the company would talk to the state government for support in popularising the items in Bihar. Subsequently, the products would be placed in the open market for sale.
 
Kumar claimed that the long-lasting insecticidal bed nets are considered by experts as one of the best defences against vector-borne diseases like dengue and malaria that claim several lives.
 
He said the ready-to-use bed net is easy to hang and requires no repeat intervention for a period of at least three years.
