According to CDC, Mosquito bites can make you sick. Disease epidemics from mosquito-borne viruses are more common, including the recent dengue outbreaks in many countries around the world, the Zika epidemic (2015-2017) and the Chikungunya epidemic (2013-2014). West Nile virus is the most common virus spread by mosquitoes in the continental United States. In the United States, people can also contract less common viruses carried by mosquitoes, such as: B. Eastern equine encephalitis or St. Louis encephalitis. From 2004 to 2018, most of the US cases of dengue, chikungunya, and zika were reported in US territories.
