Anyone but me find it interesting that the Zika outbreak epicenter in same area where Genetically Modified mosquitoes were released in 2015. For those not watching Zika seemingly exploded out of nowhere. Why the concern? The virus’ association of infection with birth malformations and neurological syndromes.
Brazil is now considered the epicenter of the Zika outbreak, which coincides with at least 4,000 reports of babies born with microcephaly just since October. It seems strange that Oxitec first unveiled its large-scale, genetically-modified mosquito farm in Brazil in July 2012, with the goal of reducing “the incidence of dengue fever,” as The Disease Daily reported.
I do not know if there is any connection. I do however find the link strange.
Zika Outbreak Epicenter in Same Area Where GM Mosquitoes Were Released in 2015
The center of the Zika virus and subsequent epidemic of microcephaly is the same place where GM mosquitoes were released in 2015.
