Mosquito disease-transmission. Abstract artwork showing a mosquito with syringe-like proboscis flying above a sleeping human victim. The syringe is filled with human blood and possibly disease- causing parasites. Mosquitoes transmit diseases such as malaria, viral encephalitis, yellow fever, and filariasis. They do this by sucking blood from a diseased person, and then transmitting some of these disease-causing parasites when feeding on the blood of a healthy person.
