Zika Virus

With the opening ceremony in Rio de Janeiro less than three months away, a Canadian professor has called for the Olympics to be postponed or moved because of the Zika outbreak, warning that the influx of visitors to Brazil will result in the avoidable birth of malformed babies.

With no signs of abatement, professionals are calling for the Olympics to be moved to another country or postponed in order to protect the lives of the thousands of people who will visit the country during the season. Brazil has also been said to be battling the largest outbreak of the virus.
