Zika and Mosquitos

During the 2016 Olympics, Zika was a top concern for athletes and visitors to Brazil. It has now spread northward to the US. The virus, even with no symptoms, can be spread from pregnant women to their newborns, causing birth defects. Should we be concerned about it here on campus? Brad Bailey talks to public health officials to track the potential spread of the disease. Services from Alameda County Mosquito Abatement District are free, and you can contact them at mosquitoes.org.
