March 30, 2020 - The New Coronavirus CANNOT Be Transmitted Through Mosquito Bites.
To date there has been no information nor evidence to suggest that the new coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes. The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. To protect yourself, clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Also, avoid close contact with anyone who is coughing and sneezing.
From the CDC – Centers for Disease Control
• Mosquitoes and ticks can’t spread all types of viruses.
• At this time, we have no data to suggest that COVID-19 or other similar coronaviruses (e.g. SARS, MERS) are spread by mosquitoes or ticks.
• For a virus to pass to a person through a mosquito or tick bite, the virus must be able to replicate inside the mosquito or tick.
