Three years ago, the Zika virus was nowhere to be found in the Western Hemisphere. To date, the largest outbreak occurred in French Polynesia in 2013 with 383 reported cases. But in 2015, Brazil suddenly found itself with an unprecedented Zika outbreak. More than a million people have been infected by the mosquito-transmitted—and potentially sexually transmitted disease.

The mosquito-borne virus doesn’t seem to harm most of its victims. But there’s increasing evidence that it can cause serious damage to the brains of fetuses and, in rare instances, devastating neurological problems in adults.

    Cause of ZIKA virus, isn't Zika it's pesticides, it's Monsanto!

  5. Dedsec says:

  6. Audrey Andea says:

  7. Ryan Westley says:

    Sounded like she was struggling to read that script.

    Women athlete who have plan to get pregnant should not go to Rio summar Olympics?

  11. White Hawk39 says:

    OK,so in 2 years,women can get pregnant again. good thing I'm not a grown up yet😅😅

  12. xCaptxCrunchx says:

    Didn't really explain Zika, the video basically stated don't get pregnant. lol

  13. LVC85costa says:

    Tin foil hat here, Larvicide created by Monsanto backfired. Zika has been around for ages, the microcephaly in babies wasn't…. until now.

  14. Alex Stefanov (umnikos) says:

    if the infected baby dies: the mother is really sad. if the baby lives: it's gonna live with a mental disorder. This is very sad…

  15. Graham J says:

    A bank holds the patent on this virus. Bill Gates has been working with a Japanese company Oxitec, developing mosquitoes that can deliver vaccines. Monsanto also plays a role in this, and the events in Brazil were most likely due to a genetic-engineering mishap with the mosquitoes.
    Monsanto then pressured the U.S. government to allow dumping RoundUp into American lakes and rivers to 'combat' the problem they created.
    I'm more scared of the vaccinating mosquitoes than any Zika virus.

    Going to Peru next year…not excited anymore

  17. David Noble says:

    Rockerfeller?

  18. David Noble says:

    Where did Zika begin? Google the Zika patent owned by the Rockerfellow Foundation. That means that it was invented, as something new, useful and valuable. It sure is: they are selling it for $599 per vile to people who are qualified to have it for research into how to control it.
