Another Mosquito Carries Zika: The Proof Health Authorities and Media are Ignoring
In March 2016, disease experts came away from the Summit on Controlling Aedes aegypti in Maceio, Brazil completely unsure of which vectors were responsible for the spread of the Zika virus. Dr. Fiona Hunter, one of few medical entomologists in Canada, told the Globe and Mail in March (2016), "The fact that there are no data as far as I can tell that Aedes aegypti is driving this Zika epidemic just flabbergasts me." After conducting my own search, I discovered that there was - and still is - huge pressure within the scientific and medical community (and in mainstream media) to keep the sole focus on two types of Aedes mosquitoes. I'm unsure why the WHO, CDC, and Health Canada are ignoring crucial data, but they are failing in their duties to protect public health. In this article, I walk you through what I've uncovered.
