Don’t cancel the Rio Olympics because of Zika

The Harvard Public Health Review has published a piece titled “Off the Podium: Why Public Health Concerns for Global Spread of Zika Virus Means That Rio de Janeiro‚Äôs 2016 Olympic Games Must Not Proceed.” The author is Amir Attaran, DPhil, LLB, MS. Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa. I believe he is incorrect and the facts bolster that belief. The Rio Olympics should not be cancelled due to any risk from Zika.
