WHO Rejects Calls To Move Rio Olympics Over Zika Outbreak

WHOZika, WHO, Rio OlympicsThe World Health Organisation (WHO) has rejected calls to move or postpone this summer’s Rio Olympic Games over the Zika epidemic.
The global health body said that the call would “not significantly alter” the spread of the virus, which is linked to serious birth defects.
At least 100 prominent scientists said in an open letter to WHO that new findings about the Zika virus made it “unethical” for the games to go ahead.
The experts have also asked the global organisation to revisit its Zika guidance.
