Does coronavirus transmitted by insects?




What is coronavirus?
Coronaviruses are types of viruses that typically affect the respiratory tract of mammals, including humans. They are associated with the common cold, pneumonia, and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and can also affect the gut.


Insects and diseases
Insects (mosquitoes, lice, fleas, bed bugs) and ticks are able to transmit a number of diseases caused by infectious agents: viruses (chikungunya virus, yellow fever, dengue fever, etc.), bacteria (Lyme disease, plague, etc.), parasites (malaria, sleeping sickness, leishmaniasis, filariasis, etc.).


Till now (February 2020) coronavirus has no evidence that insects can transmit it, and only transmitted from human to human only.
However in 2017 scientists grew flu vaccine in insect cells which was a promising step in the vaccine production, because the normal way that is using eggs, is a time consuming process.
