WASHINGTON, July 19 (Xinhua Liu Haiying) A study at Kansas State University confirmed that the new coronavirus cannot be transmitted to humans through mosquitoes.
The new study provides the first conclusive experimental data to support the World Health Organization's claim that mosquitoes cannot transmit the new coronavirus, researchers said in a paper published Wednesday in the journal Scientific Reports.
made it clear that it could not,
, whether the new coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes, saying that "there is no information or evidence that the new coronavirus can be transmitted by mosquitoes."
the conclusion is based on various observations of other coronavirus studies and is not supported by conclusive experimental data.
, the team at the Institute of Biosecurity at Kansas State University conducted targeted experimental studies to find relevant scientific evidence.
they tested the infection and replication of the new coronavirus in three common and widely distributed mosquitoes, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito and the adhesachaku mosquito, which represent snared two of the most important insect-borne virus genus infecting humans,
researchers say intra-chest vaccination is the most extreme way to attack mosquitoes, and if the new coronavirus is not replicated in mosquitoes after vaccination in the chest cavity, the possibility of transmission of the virus can be ruled out even if the mosquito smokes the blood of a patient with the virus.
researchers detected the new coronavirus in samples collected within two hours of vaccination, confirming that the virus was effectively transmitted to mosquitoes, but none of the 277 samples collected at all point in time after 24 hours were detected.
researchers concluded that the new coronavirus cannot be replicated in mosquitoes, which do not become the vector of the virus.
researchers say the new study uses scientific data to answer public questions about whether the new coronavirus can be transmitted by mosquitoes, suggesting that even under extreme conditions the virus cannot replicate in mosquitoes, and that mosquitoes that smoke the virus's blood cannot transmit the virus to humans.
