Cure for HIV At Last? Hope Rises As Nigerian Scientist Starts Mosquito Farm, Says It Has Curative Enzymes

  • A Nigerian scientist has opened a mosquito farm where he cares for and protects mosquitos he uses for his experiments
  • The scientist identified as Dr Manyi said he strongly believes enzymes in mosquitos have something to do with the cure for HIV/AIDS
  • According to the scientist, he is interested in finding out why mosquitos don't transmit HIV/AIDS even if they bite a carrier

A curious Nigerian scientist named Dr Manyi has opened a mosquito farm in Benue state, where he hopes to find the vaccine for HIV/AIDS from mosquito enzymes.

Mosquitos do not transmit HIV/AIDS even after biting a carrier of the disease, so Dr Manyi wants to find out why.

The scientist believes if mosquitoes' enzymes can kill HIV/AIDS virus, he may be on his way to finding a vaccine for the dreaded disease.

Dr Manyi raised the scientific questions in an interview with video creator, Lucky Udu.

The scientist said:

"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."
