Zika

All I really know about the Zika virus is that it has been around for decades, and that in most people, most of the time, it produces insignificant or mild symptoms—same as with the poliovirus. I sense that the fear of the virus that is being generated at the moment is an extreme over-reaction (fueled, as is usually the case, by a largely uninformed and lazy media)… which is what often happens when we humans lack ready answers or solutions to problems we encounter. Ignorance almost always makes us fearful and causes us to do stupid things that mostly just end up aggravating matters.
