Diseases from mosquitos
Mosquito-borne diseases are those spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Medications can be used to prevent infection and are available for malaria. Also vaccines are currently available for yellow fever. Avoidance of mosquito bites and use of mosquito repellent are recommended when you are in areas populated with these pests. Diseases that are spread to people by mosquitoes include the following:
Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite. It is found in many countries, including sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, as well as Central and South America. Malaria is a serious illness and may be deadly, but prevention methods are available.
Chikungunya virus is primarily found in Africa and Asia yet was found in 2013 for the first time in the Western Hemisphere.
Dengue fever is primarily a tropical disease and rarely occurs within the continental United States. Small outbreaks have occurred in the past in states such as Florida, Hawaii, and Texas.
Zika virus is a concern in many parts of the world. While most people who become infected with Zika virus have mild symptoms or no illness at all, the virus has been linked to serious health conditions, including Zika congenital syndrome in babies.
