According tomedia reports, many rumors about the health of the new crown virus are spreading in this worried world. A worrying concern is that mosquitoes can feed on infected people and then transmit the virus to another person. There’s no need to worry, according to a new study by researchers at Kansas State University.
WHO has announced that mosquito bites will not transmit the new coronavirus. WHO even included this information on the “gossip killer” page on COVID-19, saying that “so far there is no information or evidence that the new coronavirus may be transmitted by mosquitoes.” “
“Although WHO has made it clear that mosquitoes do not transmit the virus, our study provides for the first time conclusive data to support this theory,” said Stephen Higgs of Kansas State University.
The researchers studied three widely distributed common mosquitoes. “We have shown that the SARS-CoV-2 virus cannot replicate in these mosquitoes even under extreme conditions, so it cannot be transmitted to humans even if the mosquito feeds on the virus host,” the study said. “
The study was conducted at the Institute of Biosecurity in Kansas, a highly secure laboratory facility for infectious disease research.
