The research published in the journal Scientific Reports, provided the first experimental evidence on the capacity of SARS-CoV-2. It is the virus that causes COVID-19.
Scientists have inveterate for the first time that the novel coronavirus behind the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be transmitted by mosquitoes. WHO claims that the infection is not mosquito-borne.
The research, published in the journal Scientific Reports, provided the first experimental evidence on the capacity of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease, to infect and be transmitted by mosquitoes. “Here we provide the first experimental data to investigate the capacity of SARS-CoV-2 to infect and be transmitted by mosquitoes,” the study noted.
While the World Health Organization (WHO) has ultimately stated that mosquitoes cannot transmit the virus, our study is the first to provide conclusive data supporting the theory,” said Stephen Higgs, a co-author of the research from Kansas State University in the US.
Rendering to the study, led at the university’s Biosecurity Research Institute, the virus is incapable to replicate in three common and widely distributed species of mosquitoes:
Therefore it cannot be transferred in humans. Collection of sample has been collected by scientists within confirmed capable delivery of transferable viruses to these insects. 277 samples collected at all time points beyond 24 hours post-vaccination, scientist said SARS-CoV-2 cannot replicate in mosquitoes.
The scientists said “Even if a mosquito fed on a person with the virus in the blood, the mosquito would not be a vector if feeding on a naive host,”
So it has proved that mosquitoes have no role to spread corona.
