Inevitable that locally acquired cases spread to the range of the vector, what remains to be seen is if the response to this isolated emergence is sufficient to stop this outbreak spreading.

Probably not. It's already a political hot potato. Congress not allocating money, Federal regs on spraying, all sorts of nonsense. I'd spray the living fuck out of everything if it was up to me. Malathion and DDT FTW. Fuck the raptors, they'll survive.

Is a crazy sort of 'cost saving' Congress is doing, the cost of having endemic Zika virus in the continental USA likely to be enormous.

Zika has reached Florida

#70  Postby chango369 » Aug 01, 2016 8:24 pm

Federal health officials are urging pregnant women to stay away from a Miami neighborhood where more cases of Zika transmitted by local mosquitoes have been found — apparently the first time the agency has advised people not to travel to a place in the continental United States.

On Monday, Florida officials said the number of people with Zika from local mosquitoes had risen to 14 from four. All those cases have been linked to a single neighborhood.

How will we be able to tell if people in Florida start getting microcephaly?

Up to 270 Microcephaly Cases Expected in Puerto Rico Due to Zika

Puerto Rico had 10,690 laboratory-confirmed cases of Zika, including 1,035 pregnant women, as of Aug. 12

I find these numbers astonishing given that the first local case of Zika was reported only back in December of 2015.
