Well, I guess the Zika virus has made it to Miami. It appears that not unlike Dengue fever, just so many get it in the U.S. (being specific to a certain mosquito) and then it goes away. They are already spraying a certain insecticide with 100% kill rate. 3 vaccines are ready for human trial and within 2 years it will be a non sequitur. Obama still wants Congress to pass a 1.8 billion Zika bill for the CDC but it isn’t necessary; especially if we don’t know if it will be used for Iran hostage ransom money. Where they could use some bug killing would be in Brazil where the Zika virus is most prevalent.
Rio is the home of this year’s summer Olympics. Zika is rampant but they say they are getting into their “winter” season and the cases are now fewer because the Mosquitos are not as active. I always thought that when the sun goes towards the equator that those areas start their spring and summer? That is only the beginning of Rio’s problems. They have issues with athletes village housing. Must be some real tight security, being as how they have something like 20,000 cops and 30,000 military personnel, watching out for terrorism (but not pick-pockets, thieves and other nefarious “locals”). Seems Rio will be in the hole for this build for decades to come. Athletes have dropped out and tourism will be way down. Why? Because Rio is a shithole. Literally a cesspool that breeds superbugs and has medical waste…including body parts….washing up on the beach. No, that is not like our alligators in the city sewers. Oh, yeah. I remember in my younger years that you didn’t swim in the ocean in Spain for certain hours cause that was when the flushed all the waste out. Same thing in Puerto Rico. Maybe those countries have stopped but not Rio. They have warned the boaters and sailors not to get their head under water. They even said that about the pool. WHA-A-T-T? Sounds like some very exciting times to be had for gold, silver, bronze or nada. Is it worth it? Not to me. Matter of fact, I only want to watch swimming with Phelps and the girls floor exercises. Other than that, I could care less. I only hope that no one picks up an incurable super disease and bring it back here. We have plenty of our own problems already.
