I was watching about this on the world news yesterday. It shocked me that something like this is happening.

This  is one of those times that the state and Federal  need to get together and   spray the  heck out of them and try to get rid of them before they  spread all over the U.S. But then  how often do you even see  a government   person even wanting to  make a bill  to protect the American public.

I read about that virus a few days ago. It is very scary. Mosquitos carry a lot of deadly diseases. I wish they would just go away because there is only so much you can do to avoid getting bit.

With man cutting down rainforest, woods, natural habitats,.... is one of the main reasons why these virus & diseases, spewing out of the wood work! We wouldn't have discovered the AID'S virus had man just left the forest alone. Right now the Amazon's burning out, releasing, unknown bacterium,viruses, deadly disease causing pathiagenes are set free. Making the Amazon green house effect Helper!

Well that's kinda scary. So glad that I don't live in that region of the United States. Hopefully it stays rare and there aren't any new cases of it. Or maybe some kind of treatment will be created to lower or prevent the mortality rate. Wishing the best for the people in those states.
