Whipped into a frenzy by a hysterical mass media, people were dousing themselves with toxic mosquito repellents left and right to stave off the “deadly” disease that was going to shrink the heads of the next generation. Yet these days, people barely even talk about it. Have you come across many shrunken-headed babies in your daily life lately? Are your friends and family dropping like flies at the hands of this killer virus? Is the news full of heartbreaking images of the toll Zika is taking on people in far-flung regions? The answers to these questions are no, no, and no. What happened? … [Read more...] about Remember the ZIKA virus mass hysteria pushed by the media?

The Gratis, Ohio, Police Department released a warning and an offer on Facebook Monday. The warning: "If you have recently purchased Meth in Preble, Montgomery, Darke or Butler Counties it may be contaminated with the Zika Virus," officials wrote. The offer: "Please bring it to the Gratis Police Department and we will test it for free." It continues, "If you're not comfortable coming into our office, please contact us and we'll test your Meth in the privacy of your home." The police department's post got over 6,000 shares in nearly two days, but also sparked many questions about the unusual message.

The study was the first large look at the impact of guidelines set two years ago, when the Zika epidemic was an unfolding menace in the U.S. and health officials were scrambling to prevent new infections. The study, published Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine, found that the blood donation testing requirements offered little bang for the buck. It also raised questions about whether a cheaper testing method should be used. In more than 4 million blood donations checked in the United States, nine tested positive for the Zika virus. Of those, three were considered an infection threat. "We can't afford to spend that kind of money to find a single case," said Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert who was not involved in the research. Zika infections swept across Latin America and the … [Read more...] about Screening Blood for Zika Virus Not Cost Effective
