Zika fears have now gripped the United States as 10 cases of Zika virus have been confirmed in South Florida. Both Miami-Dade and Broward counties have reported cases in people claiming to have not travel outside the United States. USA Today is has announced the cases as “homegrown,” but the story seems to be a bit more complicated than mainstream media is letting on.

First and foremost, the article explicitly states that the type of mosquitoes capable of carrying Zika virus called Aedes aegypti, which are now apparently resistant to monsanto’s insecticides.

Mosquito control staff in Miami have used pyrethroid insecticides, which don’t appear to be working, Frieden said. It’s possible that the mosquitoes are resistant to the insecticides or that the mosquitoes are breeding in hidden areas that works aren’t able to find.

Further more, I find it interesting that the type of insecticide used, pyrethroid, is also being linked to Zika virus as well. (HERE)

“Malformations detected in thousands of children from pregnant women living in areas where the Brazilian state added Pyriproxyfen to drinking water are not a coincidence, even though the Ministry of Health places a direct blame on the Zika virus for this damage.”

Essentially, it is possible that Florida, a state that’s sprayed more pyrethroid insecticide than any other state trying to ‘fight off Zika virus,’ ended up poisoning itself with the very virus it set out to prevent. At the very least, the state’s mass spraying has resulted in mosquitoes thriving. In either case, Monsanto’s interference has exasperated the issue. Florida is in a no win situation which will surely result in massive financial losses to the state as tourism drops off. Miami-Dade county has recommended those living in the Wynwood neighborhood to avoid getting pregnant for the next coming weeks.

The media is going to ride this Zika wave right into vaccines which, conveniently enough, should be ready for distribution before the Olympic torches have been fanned out.
