I am Brazilian, I live in Rio, and this whole thing about Zika is a joke.
People are treating this virus as the new Ebola. Ridiculous. 1,000 people infected in a metropolitan area of over 10 million. And if you are infected, guess what. Surprisingly you will not be dying in a few hours. Not worse than a strong flu and you will get recovered. This whole thing about pregnant women is not confirmed. In the worst scenario, pregnant women should consider not traveling, but so what?
i guarantee you, we in Rio are living our lives normally. Actually this week is carnival and everybody`s on the streets partying and would be laughing if they knew how the media is treating this.
