Mosquito-Borne Viruses Reach Japan, U.S.

New York Times: Mosquito-Borne Viruses Hit Japan and the U.S.
“Mosquito-borne viruses are showing up unexpectedly in affluent countries where they have been largely unknown. Yoyogi Park, a popular oasis in downtown Tokyo, was closed last week after authorities realized it was the center of Japan’s first outbreak of dengue in 70 years. … In the United States, more than 750 cases of another painful disease, chikungunya, have been reported this year…” (McNeil, 9/8).
