WHO To Asses If Rio Olympics Should Proceed

Following growing public pressure from doctors and health professionals about the Zika virus, the Director General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Dr. Margaret Chan has caved in and agreed to convene an expert committee to consider whether the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics should proceed as planned.

She is quoted by the Telegraph:
"Given the current level of international concern, I have decided to ask members of the Zika Emergency Committee to examine the risks of holding the Olympic Summer Games as currently scheduled."
The date of the meeting will be fixed next week.

However, given the alleged close connections between WHO and the IOC, WHO is not expected to nix the Games.
