At first glance, you may just say to yourself that; no, this insect is so small it could hardly harm a fly. It turns out that it has no intention of doing so. In actual fact, this small creature is rather interested in your person. Which is why it landed on your arm. And has not budged. Because at any moment it going to start drilling for blood. Your blood. After you have brushed the creature off of your arm, call the local mosquito control saratoga springs unit just as soon as you can.
Many people have done this and no harm done. Just squat the creature dead. And that is that. But so it goes that if there is not a speckle of blood left behind, their blood or that of someone else, there will be a nasty bump or rash. Sometimes it is even tender and may only take a couple of days to heal, with or without treatment. But sometimes that prick could be dangerous. It is widely known that mosquitoes carry the malaria virus.
It is no longer confined to one continent. It is widespread. Fortunately, most functioning hospitals and medical clinics, whether public or private, do have vaccines against malaria. And mosquito control units do have organic poisons with which to kill the insects. But as has been shown in history, mosquitoes have been known carriers of that virus. By now you know it well. It is the novel Corona virus.
It is also referred to as COVID-19, the sequel to the previous century’s Spanish Flu. But try as they might, no public or private health facility currently has an answer to this virus. There is no antidote. Nor is there any cure.
