The Guardian: Zika virus command center leads biggest military operation in Brazil’s history
“It is the biggest military mobilization in Brazil’s history: 220,000 army, navy, and air force personnel have been called into action, as well as 315,000 public officials. Rapid reaction units have been deployed to take the fight across the country. Local authorities are stockpiling munitions and supplies. Scientists have been enlisted to devise new weapons of mass destruction with which to defend the motherland…” (Watts, 3/30).
