So this is how it all ends.
Scientists from Harvard (so you know they're wicked smart
) warn that the 2016 Rio Olympics could initiate a "full blown global health disaster." How do you like them apples?
Yeah, us neither. The super smart scientists are of course talking about the Zika virus, which wins a Gold medal for causing birth defects in newborns. There's currently no cure for the virus and Congress doesn't seem too interested in funding one
, so there's that.
The aforementioned "global health disaster" becomes a factor when those who are hypothetically infected with the virus return home with the potential to spread Zika to other mosquitoes or through sex (with humans, not mosquitoes). So put on those sweatpants
and hold out for as long as possible, unless the person's really
Granted, right now this is all hypothetical, but anything that could end up leading to a Contagion
