The DGS supports, for a period of 12 months, the French research organization, CIRAD, for the realization of a study on the development of a predictive mapping tool of population densities of mosquitoes of the genus Aedes
, vectors arboviruses (such as dengue, chikungunya or Zika).
The genus Aedes
has a wide rural and urban distribution in Colombia and specifically in the Caribbean area, which could facilitate the introduction and subsequent endemicity of CHIKV simply and naturally.
The mosquito genus Aedes
, renowned for its irritating bite, includes among its species tormentor and excrucians; there is a Canadian biting fly that goes under the name Chrysops cursim.
2008) used a matrix model driven by climate fluctuations to simulate the populations of two mosquito species of the genus Aedes
The possibility of other mosquitoes in transmitting the virus needs to be taken into consideration since chikungunya virus has reportedly been transmitted by a variety of species mostly belonging to the genus Aedes
The traditional classification (Knight and Stone 1977) of genus Aedes
, rather than the phylogenetic classification of Reinert et al.
CHIKV is maintained in a sylvatic cycle that involves mosquitoes of the genus Aedes
, primates, and rodents.
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an alphavirus indigenous to tropical Africa and Asia, where it is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected mosquitoes, usually of the genus Aedes
Species from Africa, belong to the phylum Arthropoda, class Insecta, order Diptera, family Culicidae, genus Aedes
A summary of the most important clinical manifestations of zika virus infection, Arboviral infection, transmitted mainly by mosquitoes of the genus Aedes
, is presented,
These viruses are transmitted to humans by the bites of infected female mosquitoes belonging to the genus Aedes
(subgenus of Stegomyia), namely Ae.
Mosquitoes belonging to genus Aedes
, are medically important, regarding transmission of many viral diseases (yellow fever, encephalitis and dengue fever) to humans.
Meigen, subgenus Aedimorphus Theobald in Southeast Asia.
Dengue viruses are transmitted from person to person or from monkey to monkey through infected female mosquitoes of the genus Aedes
New classification for the composite genus Aedes
(Diptera: Culicidae: Aedini), elevation of subgenus Ochlerotatus to generic rank, reclassification of other subgenera, and notes on certain subgenera and species.
