MOS 01Mosquitoes and flies do not have the biological basis to transmit the novel coronavirus, said Wang Liping, researcher from China Center for Disease Control and Prevention at a regular press conference in Beijing on Saturday.
 

There has been no report worldwide suggesting any novel coronavirus infection caused by vectors like mosquitoes and flies, Wang added.
 

But, they are able to transmit other diseases like malaria and dengue fever, warned the expert. She suggested that people take preventative measures against mosquito bites in summer, and also protect food from flies.
 

The major transmission routes of the novel coronavirus are through respiratory droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks, and touching eyes, nose or mouth after touching a contaminated surface, said the World Health Organization.
 

There's also a low possibility that people could be infected by brief contact with express deliverymen in an area where COVID-19 is spreading, said Wang.

蚊蝇会传播新冠病毒吗?取快递外卖会被感染吗?


夏季来临,蚊蝇增多,蚊蝇是否会传播新冠病毒?中国疾病预防控制中心研究员王丽萍表示,根据目前研究,蚊蝇不具备传播新冠病毒的生物学基础。
 

此外,从目前的掌握的流行病的证据来看,目前全球没有发现因为蚊蝇等媒介生物导致人感染新冠病毒的报道,新冠病毒主要还是通过直接接触了感染者的呼吸道飞沫传播,或者是手部接触了被感染者污染的物体,再由沾染病毒的手触摸了我们的眼睛、口腔或者鼻腔黏膜而导致感染。


王丽萍表示,尽管现在证据不支持蚊蝇作为媒介传播新冠病毒,但是它们也具备传播其他传染病的风险,如疟疾、登革热等,所以现在已经进入盛夏,公众在家庭和户外应该做好防蚊虫叮咬的保护措施,还应该注意妥善保存好食物,防止苍蝇叮爬。通过采取有效的防蚊防蝇的措施,可以极大降低媒介传染病和肠道传染病感染的风险。


此外,中国疾病预防控制中心研究员王丽萍表示,通过短时间接触快递被感染的几率很低。
