With temperatures starting to rise, there is growing concern that the Coronavirus could be transmitted through ticks and mosquitoes.

Officials with the Centers for Disease Control say at this time there is no credible information to indicate that is the case.

They say the virus must be able to replicate inside the mosquito or the tick to be transmitted, which is not common.

At this time, the only known ways of its spread is through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
