Laymen have often asked if mosquitoes could bite an AIDS
patient and then transmit AIDS to a healthy person by sucking his
or her blood-the way malaria, zika, dengue and encephalitis are
spread. Luckily for us all, mosquitoes can’t spread AIDS because:
1. Mosquito cells don’t have the T cell antigen, so the AIDS can’t multiply or duplicate in the mosquito
2. The AIDS virus cannot thrive in mosquito saliva. Plus AIDS can’t be spread by saliva. AIDS is spread via blood, rectal fluids, breast milk and reproductive fluids instead.
3. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is digested in mosquitoes [1-3].
The Germ-Terrain duality theory of disease states that the etiology of certain diseases/diseased states is better explained as a complex interplay between germs and the inherent anatomical/ physiological integrity of the body cells. It argues that the etiology of certain diseases is not fully explained merely by the presence of germs (Germ Theory) or by a mere loss of cellular integrity (Terrain Theory). As a result the prevention and treatment of such diseases should focus not just on fighting germs but on maintaining/ restoring the anatomical/physiological cellular integrity. The Germ-Terrain duality theory is a harmonization of the current Germ Theory (popularized by Louis Pasteur) and the hitherto discarded Terrain Theory (popularized by Pierre Bechamp) [4-6].
The above parameters that prevent mosquitoes from being infected by or transmitting HIV are terrain related. If terrain had nothing to do with etiology mosquitoes would be susceptible to and transmit AIDS- a frightful scenario indeed! The failure of the human immune deficiency virus to afflict and be transmitted by the mosquito (culicidae) validated the germ terrain duality theory. In closing, I wish to suggest that scientists consider electricity as a deterrent in tackling the pesky corona virus. As it has been demonstrated that electricity can disable viruses  and that viruses can be made to generate electricity  this frontier should be examined.
