Do you believe that chik-V is spread by mosquitoes?

Roy McPherson

Construction worker

I don't believe that the virus is caused by mosquito bites. Why is it that these mosquitoes only bite during daytime? Everybody knows that mosquito bites morning, noon, and night. And why is it that these mosquitoes only bite a person in the neck? Mosquito bite everywhere on one's body. I believe there is something in the atmosphere or it is caused by the recent drought, which is compounded by dust.

Annmarie Bennett

Cashier

I believe that it is an airborne virus, which is easily contracted. I have long since dismissed the thought that it is caused by mosquitoes. Do these mosquitoes take bus or taxis to other parishes?


Tasha Redwood

Cashier

This virus is not caused from any mosquito. It is something in the atmosphere, which might have been sprayed or dumped on us. No mosquito bite can cause us to be feeling such unbearable pain. And another thing, mosquitoes bite anytime, whether it is night or day.


Yanique Beckford:

Customer service rep

No. I think it's something in the air because mosquito couldn't be responsible for so many persons getting sick.
