Despite CNN reports, Zika is not a “relatively new” virus. Two Scotsmen, virologist George Dick and entomologist Alexander Haddow, discovered Zika almost 70 years ago in a forest near Entebbe, Uganda.
That same year, the virus was extracted from a Rhesus Monkey and deposited with the Rockefeller Foundation. Later it was licensed to the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), a company that sells germs to vaccine makers and bioweapons contractors worldwide. Today, the Zika virus is a commodity that can be purchased for only 599 euros.
Strangely, there have been no cases of Zika with birth defects in Africa where the virus was discovered. Also, there have been no cases of microcephaly in any country affected by Zika other than Brazil, such as Colombia, which has the highest incidence of the virus after Brazil.

I don't understand how a mosquito can transmit a virus. If it cant spread HIV and AIDS then why this BS? Its been a new virus every 6 months for the past 5 or 6 years, I dont even care anymore.

Virus spreads, doctors state it can cause issues with newborns, other than that, it is relatively harmless, citizens don't need to panic.
Now let's look at how it actually played out.
"Is this the end?" "ZIKA VIRUS IS RAPIDLY SPREADING!" - type news headlines. With content to match.
Why? Why make it out to be something other than what it is?

No microcephaly birth defects in connection with incidences of Zika apart from Brazil...
