Natgeo: Living with the Zika virus

Got this from Natgeo in the mail. A really dismal read filling the reader with a sense of hopelessness that the Brazilians have any chance of eradicating the Aedes mosquito. The dwellers of the Favelas are more realistic about that prospect and they are also its worst sufferers.

The media has stolen that health agenda for this scourge. The greater threat, dreadful as it is already isn't Zika but chikungunya.

Dengue is already everywhere but I fear the Rio Olympics would spread Zika and chikungunya even farther.
