One bite is all it takes for Zika mosquito to transmit dengue 20.5.2017
Washington D.C.: Turns out, a single mosquito bite might be enough to transmit multiple viruses. A new study led by Colorado State University researchers found that Aedes aegypti, the primary mosquito that carries Zika virus, might also transmit chikungunya and dengue viruses with one bite. The findings shed new light on what's known as a coinfection, which scientists said is not yet fully understood and may be fairly common in areas experiencing outbreaks. "A mosquito, in theory, could give you multiple viruses at once," said researcher Claudia Ruckert. The CSU team infected mosquitoes in the lab with multiple kinds of viruses to learn more about the transmission of more than one infection from a single mosquito bite. While they described the lab results as surprising, researchers said there's no reason to believe that these coinfections are more severe than being infected with one virus at a time. Existing research on coinfections is sparse, and the findings are contradictory. Chikungunya, dengue and ...
