While the arc of new infections seems to be tailing off, the effects of the Zika virus are still terrifying. I hope we can still obtain the money for education, testing, and support in this new "administration."

That would be nice, then "our administration" can divert those funds into more armored parade vehicles.

i dont see where its all that bad. most of the cases of the ( cant think of the proper name ) babies born with small heads were in brazil where heavy pesticide spraying happened. there are many other reasons why the disease happens-zika is not that high on the list

I'm out of my NYT monthly freebies, so didn't read. But I read elsewhere there's a new possible connection to heart issues that this may have covered?

Yes there has been a link detected in Zika infections and heart issues but I'm sure it's just the pesticides. :X

http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/cfh/topic/diseasesconds/microcephalus.cfm

both have basically the same information. both site the main cause to be something that stops brain development.

only 1 sites zika as a cause.

interesting.

the same hyperbole for ebola is being used for this

well you gotta scare people to approve the monies!

How much was spent on Ebola again? $1.62 billion?

How often are we going to fall for this crap?
