USA Today has put out a vast video and image friendly report on how the local governments in the gulf states (Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, and Louisiana) are doing in dealing with the mosquitoes bringing in the Zika Virus to the United States. Some of it is great to know, other parts quite sobering, but either way it's very much worth taking a look at. Please check it out here.

It is so very important to stay informed on the updates that are coming out regarding the Zika virus. One of the main reasons this is important is that it seems like a large amount of contradictory information is finding its way into the media landscape. If we can take in whats reported, and try to sift through the most relevant information, we may have a decent idea of what it is that is taking place. The Technical Director here at Falcon found the following two articles to be of particular interest regarding the ike Virus and it's on-going effects:

Zika Virus Infecting Hospitality Industry (Multibriefs)

CDC Sounds Warning on Zika Virus (USA Today)

For a large downloadable version of the map by NSF, click here. The NSF has a quote that just about everyone living in the United States will want to know: 

"Summertime weather conditions are favorable for populations of the mosquito along the East Coast as far north as New York City and across the southern tier of the country as far west as Phoenix and Los Angeles, according to specialized computer simulations by the researchers.

Spring and fall conditions can support low to moderate populations of the Aedes aegypti mosquito in more southern regions of its U.S. range. Wintertime weather is too cold for the species outside southern Florida and southern Texas, the study found."

Unfortunately for us Floridians, our states climate remains a fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes and along with it, the Zika virus. Protect yourselves and stay safe. Take a look at the original NSF report here
