If a mosquito bites someone with aids and then it bites you, will you get aids?

No. Mosquitoes are not flying hypodermic needles.

But you know when mosquitos bite someone they inject a bit of the other persons blood in you. (I think)

Should you worry about getting AIDS from a mosquito bite?
The simple answer is... NO.

Why?
1. How would HIV get into a mosquito?

* First of all, the mosquito would have to bite a person infected with HIV.


* This person would also have to be in a stage of infection when HIV particles are in the blood. The amount of infectious HIV particles found in the blood changes over the course of an infection.


* The blood taken by the mosquito would have to have HIV particles in it.


2. How does HIV survive in a mosquito?

* Since the mosquito is NOT part of the HIV "life cycle", the transfer of the virus would be entirely up to chance events.


* These HIV particles would have to somehow get into the saliva of the mosquito, and then be transferred to a new person.


3. How would HIV get from a mosquito to you?

* During a bite, the mosquito injects saliva into your blood. This keeps your blood liquid, and easy for the mosquito to take.
* The mosquito drinks, and leaves. Any mosquito saliva left is all that could contain a possible HIV particle.
* It looks like a mosquito does not transfer much from "meal to meal". So, the odds are very minimal of getting AIDS from a mosquito.


So, you really don't have to worry about getting AIDS from a mosquito bite.


looks like my ctrl+c and ctrl+v skills are still ok

You'll get malaria though.

Mosquito's are part of the Malarial life-cycle.

As in, the mosquito is infected by malaria, and the malaria has mechanisms in place to get into the saliva.

AIDS doesn't.
Now 100% humour free, in accordance with the rules.
