New Yorker Examines Unexpected, Rapid Decline In Zika Cases
New Yorker: Is Zika Gone for Good?
“…[Last year, t]he Zika virus had spread to Florida from South and Central America … There had already been several hundred cases of local transmission in the continental United States. The World Health Organization had declared Zika a global emergency. … Now, however, the spread of Zika in the continental United States has virtually ended. … Dramatic declines in the numbers of new Zika cases have also been noted in South and Central America. How did the epidemic explode in the Americas and then withdraw so quickly? And is Zika gone for good?..” (Groopman, 9/2).
