Review: ‘Zika’ Tracks the Trajectory of an Epidemic - The New York Times: "The United States had no Zika epidemic when Mr. McNeil completed his book; nearly all cases identified in the United States and Puerto Rico before June 1 were related to a traveler who had acquired the virus in another country. That is no longer the case. Zika is spreading so rapidly now in Puerto Rico that United States health officials predict 25 percent of the population will be infected by early August. As Zika surfaces inside the continental United States new puzzles are arising, including how the virus was transmitted from a man in Utah, who died of the disease, to his adult son, who had cared for him; presumably the virus spread via blood, saliva or urine. And authorities are investigating two cases of apparent mosquito transmission of Zika in Miami, the possible onset of North America’s homegrown outbreak.
