Mobilising an army against mosquitoes... Something we've all been hoping for.


On a serious note, going from an annual 160 odd cases to more than 3500 since October is a bit of a crises. I note that there has been one or two cases in the US now as well.

I'm pretty sure that the mothers of most GOP presidential contenders all suffered severe Zika infections during their pregnancies with said politicians...
