    Good thing the 2010 Vancouver Games did not have to worry about this virus. There were a lot of sex going on there...they even ran out of condoms.
    What about all the boating sports that are to take place in what is little more than an untreated cesspool?

      Health experts urge WHO to consider moving Rio Olympics

      The support to move the games is growing..

      Too Little, Too Late.

      LONDON (AP) -- Health experts on Friday urged the World Health Organization to consider whether the Rio de Janeiro Olympics should be postponed or moved because of the Zika outbreak.

      The 150 experts - including former White House science adviser Dr. Philip Rubin - issued an open letter to the U.N. health agency, calling for the games to be delayed or relocated ''in the name of public health.''

      The letter cited recent scientific evidence that the Zika virus causes severe birth defects, most notably babies born with abnormally small heads. In adults, it can cause neurological problems, including a rare syndrome that can be fatal or result in temporary paralysis. The authors also noted that despite increased efforts to wipe out the mosquitoes that spread Zika, infections in Rio have gone up rather than down.

      Several public health academics have previously warned that having hundreds of thousands of people head to the Aug. 5-21 games in Brazil will inevitably lead to the births of more brain-damaged babies and speed up the virus' global spread. Most people infected by Zika suffer only minor symptoms including fever, a rash and muscle or joint pain.

        Beijing had huge issues with their water venues. The Chinese Olympic Committee turned to a US company that produces aquarium and pond water conditioners and bacteria.

          Beijing did have enormous challenges, but the Chinese had wealth and a stable society.
          Rio has terrible problems with stark poverty and corruption, political upheaval and lack of basic sanitation and no will to change things.
