  • CDC Director: Zika "Not Controllable With Current Technologies," Will Become Endemic

    "Here's the plain truth," he said. "Zika, and other diseases spread by Aedes aegypti, are really not controllable with current technologies. So we will see this become endemic in the hemisphere."

    Before anyone throws their clothes in a bag and heads for Greenland, it's worth unpacking exactly what Frieden meant: He wasn't specifically saying Zika will never leave Miami. Rather, he said that without new technologies, pockets of active transmission will pop up around the nation until either a Zika vaccine is produced or we eradicate the Aedes aegpyti mosquito from America.
