Which Mosquitoes Transmit Zika? Many Americans Don’t Know

The survey is the seventh in a series on Zika and its health, policy and behavioral implications from The Annenberg Science Knowledge (ASK); Surveys conducted by SSRS

“The survey of 1,020 U.S. adults, conducted March 22-26, found that 82 percent of respondents correctly say that scientists think that one can get the Zika virus by being bitten by a mosquito that has already bitten someone who has the virus. But 40 percent of people incorrectly think that both male and female mosquitoes bite. Only females bite.”

“The ASK survey is the seventh in a series on Zika and its health, policy and behavioral implications. The phone survey was conducted for APPC by the research firm SSRS among 1,020 U.S. adults and has a margin of error of ±3.7 percent.”
