The director of the Us Centers for Disease control prevention gave a warning this week that the US must do a good job of fighting mosquitos this season due to the threat of the Zika virus. He is also pushing congress to approve 1.9 billion dollars in prevention funding. According to the director, pika is the first disease proven to cause birth defects in more than 50 years and continued that the narrow window to set up effective pika prevention measures is closing. The Washington post is reporting that Congress, downplaying the risk of waiting, have taken a two week break without addressing the zika virus and approving the desired funding.
