  1. I saw a few glaring omissions on the Wikipedia page called "Zika fever" so I added crucial information with citations. However, within three hours, every study I cited was removed. And, I filmed it all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2ZuG12yM0E&t

    Dr. Constancia Ayres in Fiocruz Recife has shown that a far more common mosquito, Culex quinquefasciatus, which breeds in dirty water (Aedes aegypti mostly breeds in clean water), can be infected with Zika virus in the lab.

    Dr. Duschinka Guedes presented strong evidence that "in Recife, Brazil, both Aedes aegypti and Cules quinquefasciatus are vectors" of the Zika virus. Source: https://f1000research.com/articles/5-2546/v1

    In September 2016, a study by Guo et al. concluded: "These laboratory results clearly demonstrate the potential role of Cx. p. quinquefasciatus as a vector of ZIKV in China. Because there are quite different vector management strategies required to control Aedes (Stegomyia) species and Cx. p. quinquefasciatus, an integrated approach may be required should a Zika epidemic occur."

    Wolbachia spp. should be further evaluated as causes of human infection, especially as Wolbachia infection of mosquitoes is increasingly considered to be a tool for interfering with mosquito-borne transmission of human pathogens.
