Zika

In this Feb. 1, 2016 photo, a cock walks among sewage and trash below a home on stilts in a slum in Recife, Pernambuco state, Brazil. The Zika virus is spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which is well-adapted to humans, thrives in people’s homes and can breed in even a bottle cap’s-worth of stagnant water. While anyone can be bitten by Aedes, public health experts agree that the poor are more vulnerable because they often lack amenities that help diminish the risk, such as air conditioning and window screens.
