    Changing pests' genomes for a single disease is hardly efficient. We already have engineered unfertile male mosquitoes that would mate but prevent the female from laying viable eggs. Let's do it with all of them, mosquitoes, ticks, lices, disease carrying flies, etc. Will there be consequences? Of course. Is the cost-benefit ratio acceptable? Of course.

    The technology should be trialled on large islands such as Madagascar or Borneo. That way, practical experience in using gene drives for disease eradication can be gained, in environments similar to the disease's main strongholds. If any of the concerns surrounding the technology were to be realised during the trial campaigns, the isolation of the islands would limit negative repercussions.

    Honestly, I'm the kind of person who would want to apply it. I'm sure there would be unintended consequences, but like they said, these will likely not be on an apocalyptic scale. Most great achievements come with a pretty big risk, and if it's unethical to use technologies that could eradicate human life, then we should disarm all nuclear weapons. At least this has a high chance of benefitting humanity long-term.

    i think a test site with mosquito nets and mice , which has 50% GMO mosquitos and 50% regular , about the size of a house should first be monitored and based on what happens we should expand . such that the health of the mice is routinely checked . and the effect on by-standing plants and animals is noted also each test site should be tailored to replicate a particular ecosystem.

    (sorry for the bad english, I'm using the translator) I think they should use it soon, I mean, at least in relation to malaria, come on! Millions of lives could be saved with this, and by the way, it’s always that, they find the solution of something, but they’re very afraid (or worried about money) to test, they always roll around instead of trying, I know it’s dangerous as hell but some simpler things should be tested, because these simple things are the beginning! We should try, instead of shrinking and expecting it to be "100% safe" because there will always be risks, but some risks are worth it.
