Hi!!

I live in New Delhi and as u may b aware that we are facing the scare of Dengu becomming an epidemic here, I have a question to ask u in this regard...

As it is said that Dengue is transmitted to humans by the mosquito Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Can a non Aedes aegypti mosquito or the other common mosquito who has bitten a Dengue patient transmit the Dengue virus to another person on biting him?????

Please inform me about this fact as I am really worried!

Thankyou.
