NMSU to continue studying mosquitoes with Zika virus


LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – Researchers at New Mexico State University will keep studying mosquitoes with the Zika virus. This, after the State Health Department, renewed their contract with the university.

Under the new contract, researchers will study what kinds of conditions attract mosquitoes that can transmit Zika.

They will be doing a study of the 11 largest cities in southern New Mexico to see if there is a connection with urban areas.

There have been 10 reported cases of Zika in New Mexico. None of them got the virus in the state.
