Addendum:

Two mechanisms through which biting insects might transmit a virus:

First, the virus might be ingested with blood, reproduce and multiply in the insect, migrate to the insect’s salivary glands, and be injected into uninfected persons on whom the insect subsequently fed. This is known as biological transmission and is the mode through which such diseases as malaria are transmitted.

The second possible way is via "mechanical" transmission. The insect might begin to feed, be interrupted for one reason or another, and then move on to another, uninfected person to complete its meal.

The insect might then transfer part of the fresh blood remaining on its mouthparts from its previous feeding attempt to the uninfected person, and might also regurgitate some of its previous bloodmeal.

An uninfected person would also have to be bitten within an hour of the insect’s biting an infected person; and both infected and uninfected persons would have to be in close proximity to each other (a few hundred feet for mosquitoes).
