Does the Olympics in Rio put the world in danger of Zika?
NPR - 06/03/2016
Officials are expecting around 500,000 spectators and athletes. Then the model predicts, there will be — at most — 16 cases of Zika at the Olympics.
So attendees are much more likely to get the flu or food poisoning at the games than Zika, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control concluded.
“If I would be an athlete competing, from what I’ve read, I would be more concerned about the pollution in the water than Zika,” says Alessandro Vespignani, at Northeastern University in Boston.
