The Asian tiger mosquito – known to transmit the Zika virus to humans – has been trapped in Windsor.

According to the Windsor Essex County Health Unit, the Aedes albopictus species was trapped during a routine monitoring and surveillance for West Nile Virus in Windsor.

It’s part of the mosquito species that has the potential to transmit Zika virus to humans, though the mosquito found by the Health Unit tested negative for Zika.

The health unit will be hosting a press conference Thursday with medical officer of health, Dr. Gary Kirk, and Dr. Doug Sider, the medical director of Communicable Disease Prevention and Control.

The press conference begins at 10 a.m. at the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.
