Is the DHS doing anything at all to prepare as well as protect our nation from an EMP attack? If not, why not? Something this serious should NEVER be ignored!!

Open Data

Test to find out if mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting insects can transmit Covid 19.

Since we know ticks and mosquitos already transmit viruses(Rocky Mountain spotted fever, West Nile and Lyme disease to name just a few.of the dozens that are transmittable through a bite) to humans, we need to know if Covid 19 can be transmitted in this fashion too.

If it is found to be transmittable in this fashion a further lockdown may be required along with possible pest management in high population areas.
