  • There are levels of hypocrisy that threaten to drag a scream from anyone paying the least bit of attention. Then there are levels of hypocrisy that threaten lives. Four months after President Obama requested funding to fight the looming threat of Zika, Republicans are working hard—not to address the crisis, but to milk it for any possible political advantage.

    "The feud on Capitol Hill over responding to the rapidly spreading Zika virus would seem to be largely a fight over how much money is needed to fight the mosquito-borne scourge.

    But lurking just beneath the surface are issues that have long stirred partisan mistrust, including Republicans’ fears about the use of taxpayer money for abortion and possible increased use of contraception, and Democratic worries about protecting the environment from potentially dangerous pesticides.

    Public health officials warn that the virus will not stop to check party affiliation — the mosquitoes that carry it bite Republicans and Democrats alike."

    No. Wrong. And David Herszenhorn at the New York Times, this mentions you by name because of Just How Wrong It Is. Dammit. This blatant example of “both sides do it,” when both sides are so not doing it, is going to cost lives. This is not a damn game, and it’s not time to play some silly “we must always find a reason to share the blame” show of journalistic spinelessness. Stop it. Just stop it.

  • Researchers studying babies with a Zika virus-related birth defect say they have found previously unreported eye problems possibly linked to the virus that could result in severe visual impairment. In three Brazilian infants with microcephaly, the researchers observed retinal lesions, hemorrhaging and abnormal blood vessel development not noted before in relation to the virus. The findings are being published online today in Ophthalmology, journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

  • Dr. Thomas Frieden, the director of the CDC, told the New York Times yesterday, “This is no way to fight an epidemic. Three months is an eternity for control of an outbreak. There is a narrow window of opportunity here and it’s closing. Every day that passes makes it harder to stop Zika.”

    Under the current GOP plan, it may be “well into the summer, or even longer” before Congress approves an inadequate final bill to address the Zika virus.

  • Donald Trump says it all the time: “We don’t win anymore.” If you got all your economic news from the presumed Republican nominee, you’d think U.S. businesses hadn’t added any new jobs or accomplished anything worthwhile since sometime in the Johnson administration. Americans nowadays, he keeps suggesting, are total losers.

    While Trump’s rhetoric denigrates the achievements of U.S. companies and their millions of employees, his specific proposals are worse. They reveal a vision of the good economy as static, uninnovative and controlled from the White House. President Trump’s America is, despite the rhetoric, an economy with no place for winners.

    One word reply to accusations of idiot = Trump! You do realise the rest of the world is looking at the great leaders of the free world and most people think a large part of your population are mentally unbalanced to be supporting such a pathologically dishonest, racist, woman hating fraudster?

  • People are normally infected by mosquito bites, but there is also evidence that the virus can pass as a result of sexual contact. Latin America and the Caribbean have been hit hardest by the Zika outbreak and as Chan points out this region has “the highest proportion of unintended pregnancies anywhere in the world."

    "Zika shows an extreme consequence of the failure to provide universal access to sexual and family planning services," she mentioned, according to AFP.

  • "I am very confident that we will be the first company with a Zika vaccine in the clinic," said Joseph Kim, Inovio CEO, who founded the company with immunologist and vaccine expert David Weiner, now at Wistar. Inovio expects to begin clinical tests in people in the next few months.

    (Reuters) - In Mississippi, a small team of entomologists has begun the first survey of mosquito populations in decades. Experts do not believe the kind of mosquitoes most likely to carry the Zika virus are active in the state, but they cannot know for sure.

    By contrast, the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, has been active since the late 1920s. With an annual budget of over $15 million, it now deploys four helicopters, two airplanes and 33 inspectors covering 125 square miles.

    Because they are funded by local taxpayer dollars, U.S. mosquito control programs reflect deep economic disparities between communities, leaving some at-risk locations badly unprepared for the virus that is spreading through the Americas.

  • SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Even though it is not here now, one type of mosquito that can transmit Zika virus may eventually migrate to Central New York, according to a mosquito-borne disease expert at Upstate Medical Univerity,

    Dr. Mark Polhemus said the geographic range of mosquito-borne diseases can grow dramatically. He cited West Nile virus as an example. In 1999 there was an outbreak of West Nile in a six-county area surrounding New York City. Within three years it spread to 44 states, the District of Columbia and five Canadian provinces.

    Schuchat said approximately 500 people in the U.S. were found to have likely been infected with Zika. However, since 80 percent of people with a Zika infection do not show symptoms, she estimates that thousands may have arrived in the U.S. unaware they were infected with the Zika virus and potentially able to start an outbreak through the mosquito population.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Federal health officials today said they believe "thousands" of people may have contracted the Zika virus before returning to the U.S. as they remain concerned that the virus might start to have ongoing transmission in the U.S.

  • “We already have Zika in the United States. But it is travel related,” said Dr Fauci, speaking in a television interview on Sunday.

    “The concern is that we will have local transmission; in other words, people who get infected in the United States, get bitten by a mosquito, but who have never left the continental United States.

    “We fully expect that that will happen as we get to the more robust mosquito season in the next month or so.”
