Zika Cases Emerging From the Olympics

While mainstream media and Olympic partners were proclaiming that the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro were Zika-free, I uncovered a disturbing public health department policy, a complete lack of Zika virus screening, and an information guide (given to athletes) by one Rio Olympic team doctor which included false and misleading statements. Honestly, I doubt we will ever know the true count of Zika cases acquired at the Olympics by athletes, tourists, or others. And sadly, the CDC appears to be ignoring regions that are highly vulnerable to epidemics of Zika. Largely in part because they refuse to acknowledge proof that Culex mosquitoes are also a vector of the Zika virus.
