  • Anychance, Zika &/or Enterovirus being part of a Staph. Pnuemonia Outbreak
    (biofilm related, which may also cause microcephaly) diagnosable through
    sputum culture? With all the Medical Gaslighting, Upcoding, Medicare
    Fraud, and doctors refusing to give inexpensive medical test while ignoring facts, doesn’t seem far fetched. Plus couldn’t antivirals be used on viruses. Remember Fared
    Fata M.D. from Detroit MI, or Michael J. Reinstein, MD from Chicago IL.

  • Of all the dozens of things out there that can cause microcephaly, why are these doctors rushing to put the blame on Zika? How convenient!! What evidence do they really have? Medicine sometimes looks worse than voodoo.

  • These people that are leaving the country and comeing back are bringing the virus back with them. They are helping it spread. If they have it and get bit by a mosquito that doesn’t ha bet it then the mosquito will get it and spread like wild fire.
