The Ebola Virus Transmitted By Insects?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) believes that insects are not involved in transmission of the Ebola virus. While research shows that transmission from mosquitoes is unlikely, medical entomologists are concerned about insects like flies. Some species of flies, especially those in Africa, feed on eyes and open wounds of people. It is possible that these flies can mechanically transmit (not in their saliva or feces, but just on their bodies) the virus. So we are still not sure if insects at times play a role in transmitting this deadly disease.
