Mosquitoes can act as a carrier of coronavirus for about a day. The relevant information was provided in the domestic Rospotrebnadzor.
The representative of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology under the department of Lyudmila Karan pointed out that the overwhelming majority of viruses carried by the mentioned insects do not provoke respiratory viral infections. The researchers studied three types of mosquitoes common in China. As a result, it turned out that the virus does not multiply in these representatives of the fauna, while its death occurs within an average of 24 hours.
Most of the viruses and bacteria carried by mosquitoes spread in the cells of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems. Such pathogens do not cause respiratory ailments and are not transmitted between people by airborne droplets.
