    Default Travel to Olympics in Brazil vs Zika caution

    Would you travel to the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, a country which has the Zika Virus? Warnings about travel include:
    CDC
    Because of the risk of birth defects in babies born to women who were infected with Zika while pregnant, women who are pregnant should not travel to Brazil
    CDC
    Sexual transmission of Zika virus is also possible, so travelers are encouraged to use condoms or not have sex.
    The Independent stated:
    More than 200 health professionals wrote an open letter urging Brazilian officials to cancel or postpone the Games in Rio de Janeiro. The letter cited the World Health Organisation’s declaration of Zika as a “public health emergency of international concern”.
    I even avoided certain areas of in Hawaii when Dengue Fever was prevalent earlier this year. I'd have a hard time deciding that going to Brazil was a good idea when considering safety of health.
    Now run along and play, but don’t get into trouble.

    zika is just one of many big reasons to avoid Rio, and ticket sales have bottomed. this is promising to be the biggest disaster in Olympic history matched only by the Israeli massacre and those who sit on the board.
