    Probably not what you guys want to read, however if this isn't under control really soon, it could potentially wipe out the human race inside 2 generations

    Edit: if it is indeed the cause for microcephaly as it's suggested at the moment.

    So could a cold.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    No, not really, because a cold is preventable - i.e. you fucking stay indoors, don't use public transport, facemasks, limit interaction with other people, so on and so forth. You can't control mosquitos and we don't know yet if that specific species is the only carrier. Potentially all mosquitos could carry that shit and trust me, from the knowledge I have about disease vectors, it looks quite grim. Imagine malaria still exists, even though its efforts for eradication are still immense. There is no vaccine, there is a treatment however, but when you have a virus that mimics a cold most of the times and it's from the same family as hepatitis C, you're looking at a disease with unkillable vectors that stealthily kills fetuses and a vaccine is impossible to obtain inside a good timeframe - think about the fact there is no vaccine for Hep C either and I doubt we'll ever see one.

    If that isn't scary, I don't know wtf is.

    No, because once it is widespread women will have been exposed to the virus since childhood, and thus have built up immunity to it.

    It's why we don't see the same rate of the birth defect in Africa, while South American pregnant women are more likely to never have been infected.

    Sure, just as people exposed to hep C since childhood have developed immunity to it.

    Can you just stick to your own field you're good at?

    Underestimating shit got us to a point where there are bugs resistant to every antibiotic we know of and it isn't tinfoiling. Get a grip.

    I trust The Economist having done their fact checking more than I do the drivel you post.

    This will turn out to be fuck all as usual. Some brown people might die or something. Fucking doom-monger idiots. Anything for a story.
