Answer

Some infectious diseases can be transmitted through insect "vectors" (a vector is the medical term for a person, animal, or insect that carries and transmits an infectious disease from a different living organism to another). However, research has shown that hepatitis C is not transmitted through mosquitoes or other insects. There are plenty of reasons to avoid mosquito bites, but hepatitis C isn't one of them.
