What do you plan to do about Zika? Please read the following letter about this deadly disease:
"Dear friends at National Nurses United,
Thanks for taking action against dangerous, contagious diseases like Zika. I feel that Ebola is still a serious potential threat, and has a much higher mortality rate, but Zika seems to be spreading fast in the Western hemisphere and is an immediate danger to all of us. Zika causes encephalitis and brain-nerve damage in adults as well as in embryos, and I suspect many cases of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease are cause by viral infections. The sad cases of Zika-infected moms giving birth to babies with severe, irreversible brain damage are hitting us here in the mainland USA now. May I suggest that everyone who tests positive for Zika be quarantined for at least 30 days, because ONE person who is infected with Zika can spread it to their entire neighborhood if bitten by a mosquito which bites the neighbors. The real danger is from people who carry the Zika virus, not from mosquitoes. Unless there is an infected person in the immediate neighborhood, mosquitoes cannot transmit Zika. Zika was first "discovered" in Uganda in 1947, and brought to Brazil a few years ago by a Zika-infected African soccer fan attending World Cup games in Brazil. Zika has spread rapidly throughout Brazil since that time, and is now widespread in Puerto Rico and quickly spreading in Florida, and probably soon in other Gulf states.
Have a nice Labor Day weekend cookout, but watch out for those mosquitoes!
Gary J. Minter"
