Setting the record straight… Cockroaches are NOT KNOWN TO Transmit Coronavirus…The problem with cockroaches (other than being cockroaches) is that as they move about their bodies become contaminated with bacteria which is then transferred to other surfaces they encounter–such as our kitchens and food. There is only one known virus that cockroaches carry. It is not Coronavirus. The scientific community is studying whether cockroaches can transmit Coronavirus.
