Worried about mosquitoes spreading coronavirus just like they spread dengue and malaria? Read on more to find out the real answer.
As Coronavirus has ruined two years of our lives, it is natural to hate it collectively. While the healthcare sector is constantly working on the frontline, numerous misconceptions and myths are making rounds on the internet. Among many others, one of the most common is – can mosquitoes spread the coronavirus? And, the most obvious precaution method that will pop in your head would be opting for mosquito pest control. But before identifying how effective professional mosquito control would be, it is essential to know whether it has anything to do with spreading coronavirus.
Let’s dive into facts first! According to the World Health Organization’s website, vector-borne diseases account for more than 17% of all infectious diseases, including parasites, bacteria, or viruses. WHO’s website has also stated that Malaria, a parasitic infection transmitted by mosquitoes, causes an estimated 219 million cases globally, and results in more than 400,000 deaths every year. Meanwhile, the global organization has also claimed that more than 3.9 billion people in over 129 countries are at risk of contracting dengue. We have stated these facts not to scare you but to only be aware of the health hazards these six-legged monsters can cause.
Well, not much to your surprise, none of these little beasts can cause Coronavirus! The international agency has stated and we quote, “The COVID-19 virus CANNOT be spread through mosquito bites” (as of now). Explaining further, the website added that to date there has been no information nor evidence to suggest that the coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes. It mentions that Covid-19 is a respiratory virus that spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose.
On the other hand, in June 2020, PubMed Central, a free digital repository that archives open access full-text scholarly articles in biomedical and life sciences journals, published a study on the same. According to the report, researchers injected a strand of the SARS-CoV-2 virus into isolated cells of the common Aedes mosquito.
The researchers discovered that the virus was incapable of replicating in the cells of mosquitoes. In the same study, the team collected 1,165 mosquitoes from around the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the first outbreak of COVID-19 was recorded. Concluding their research, they informed that all the collected mosquitoes tested negative for the virus.
So, long story short – mosquito bites cannot cause Covid-19 to humans. However, they can still cause severe diseases that can lead to death. Along with Dengue and Malaria, the diseases transmitted by mosquitoes include chikungunya fever, Zika virus fever, yellow fever, West Nile fever, Japanese encephalitis, among others. However, many of these diseases are preventable, through protective measures such as hiring professional mosquito pest control services.
