Why can't mosquitoes transmit AIDS?
if mosquitoes transmit diseases such as malaria by ingesting blood and then mixing some of that old blood with the blood of the next victim they are biting, why can’t they do so with HIV? Furthermore, if there is something in a mosquitoe’s stomach/system that kills the virus, or that prevents it from being transmittable, why don’t we use this to create a vaccine?
