While the World Health Organization( WHO) is saying that the ZIKA Virus continues to be a Public Challenge but not an issue of International concern, the ZIKA virus infection has been noticed in several Countries. We would like the WHO to elaborate more when the experts say not an issue of International concern. CDC is doing a very good job by helping the American people deal with the ZIKA virus infection and by providing education and prevention to the American People. But traveler’s restriction is going to have an impact to tourism which will then affect the Global World economy. Our prediction is the following: with the travel restriction, America will be isolated from the rest of the World because there are so many countries where the ZIKA is endemic. Let us provide to the People the different Countries where the ZIKA virus has been found in order to give the American people and the World Community the opportunity to come with their own opinion .
The ZIKA Virus has been found in the following Countries: Per CDC
