WHO Gives Rio Olympics The Green Light

The World Health Organization said that the 2016 Olympics do not need to be moved from Rio de Janeiro, or postponed, because there is "a very low risk" that holding the games there will cause further spread of the Zika virus.

The WHO's expert panel on Zika concluded that hosting the Olympics in August (during the Brazilian winter) means that the mosquito population will be smaller, and intensified mosquito-control measures to be in place around the competition venues "should further reduce the risk of transmission."

Let us trust that the WHO is coreect!
