Frequently Asked Questions

How do mosquitoes spread Zika?

Mosquitoes, specifically an Aedes species mosquito (the same mosquitoes that spread dengue and chikungunya), spread the virus through bites. If a mosquito bites someone with Zika and then bites another person, it’ll pass along the virus through the bloodstream.
