WHO Emergency Committee on Zika to Meet June 14 to review Olympics

What will they decide about the Olympics


The World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the Emergency Committee on Zika will meet on June 14 to discuss the impact of the Zika virus on the Olympics in Rio.

The WHO is calling the meeting a regular three month meeting to review new evidence and consider whether Zika should still be considered an international health emergency.

Two new studies predict that there will be no more than 15-16 additional cases of Zika among the 500,000 or more tourists and athletes attending the games. Only 15-16 cases out of 500,000 seem ridiculously small.  The studies come from a Sao Paulo-based research group and University of Sao Paulo

Stay tuned for the outcome of the meeting.

Stay safe and travel far
