Dr Manyi, a Nigerian scientist has opened a mosquito farm in Benue state, where he hopes to find the cure for HIV/AIDS from mosquito enzymes.
According to scientist, Mosquito does not transmit HIV/AIDS even after biting someone that has the disease, so Dr Manyi wants to find out the reasons.
The doctor said that he strongly believes that there is something in mosquito that can kill HIV/AIDS which makes it impossible for transmission.
According to the doctor, he is interested in analysing and studying the enzymes in mosquitos so as to find out exactly why they are not able to transmit HIV/AIDS even after biting someone that has it.
The doctor believes that if mosquitoes' enzymes can kill HIV/AIDS virus, he may be lucky to find a vaccine for the deathly disease.
Dr Manyi made the statement in an interview with video creator, Lucky Udu.
According to his statement: "I believe the enzymes in mosquito have something to do with the cure for HIV/AIDS. This lab is interested in finding out that which makes mosquitoes not to be a viable means for HIV transmission. We want to know what happens that makes the virus to die so that it is not transmitted to the next person."
