The following article is an edited transcript of a conversation I had with an expert in the field of mosquito control, who asked that I not be identified.
You are the mosquito expert.
What do you think are the biggest risks to the public?
I think that we need to be very careful when we do that because, in the case of Zika, you need to make sure that you are in areas that are being monitored.
So the risk is that you get in areas where there is a lot of travel.
You can’t avoid mosquitoes.
There’s been a lot more focus on mosquito breeding sites in the last few months because there has been so much concern about Zika, and there is also a lot less travel.
How do you determine where you need more vigilance?
I would say that it depends on where you live, because, if you live in areas with high levels of travel, you may have a greater risk.
You need to consider where you’re going to go, where you know your neighbours are going to be going, and where you have a lot people who live in proximity to one another.
I think the best way to prevent mosquito breeding is to have a good diet.
That is really important.
Do you think the US has a Zika problem?
I don’t know, I think the numbers are going up in the US, and I think that the population is getting smaller.
Are there more cases of Zika in the states?
In New Jersey, it’s been very, very slow.
It’s been like a lot in New York.
It has a lot to do with a very small population of mosquitoes in the areas where people are moving.
We’re just seeing cases that are happening in a very, small area.
Are they increasing?
No, they’re decreasing.
They are decreasing in the northern states, but the western states are going in the other direction.
I think we are seeing a very slow decline.
Is it too early to call this a pandemic?
I don’t think it is.
I mean, it is a very different situation than we had in the UK or Europe.
It is very hard to get an accurate picture of the spread of Zika because the virus doesn’t live in people.
It lives in mosquitoes.
The virus will always live in mosquitoes, but it is very difficult to get accurate data on where it’s being transmitted and the extent of the risk.
Where do you see Zika spreading in the world?
In the next couple of years, we are going back to what I call the “southern hemispheric” region.
The southern hemisphere is the region where we have the highest levels of transmission.
There are countries where it has been very low.
We are seeing cases of cases in Brazil, for example, and it’s very low, but we’ve seen a number of new cases.
We’ve also seen a couple of new deaths.
Is that a good sign?
I am not sure.
I do think it’s good to be optimistic.
It might be that the countries that have the most cases of the virus will have the best future.
The problem with the United States is that we are so spread out geographically.
It can be very difficult, particularly in the eastern states.
We also have a very high proportion of cases of other infections, and we have very low rates of vaccine uptake.
Can the US do more to combat the spread?
I can’t really answer that because I don´t know the data.
I can say that, in fact, we need a very careful approach to mosquito breeding.
There is no question that we have to be vigilant, and, as you mentioned, we should be cautious in terms of travel patterns.
It would be great if we could get a lot, a lot better numbers.
But, as it stands, I donít think that there is enough data to make any kind of prediction about where we are headed.
When do we know that we will be safe?
When we are at least two months away.
I’m not going to say when we know we will not be at risk, but when we are near two months, I would say when it is probably less than one month away.
We should know that very, VERY soon.
We have heard a lot about the US being one of the most “overwhelmed” countries when it comes to Zika.
How did you come to this conclusion?
The United States has had its own outbreaks of the Zika virus.
In the early stages of the pandemic, when there was no vaccine, and even then, the vaccine was really effective, and that is why we had such high levels.
And the US government has said that there are going be many more cases in the coming weeks, and they are going after states with the most active Zika cases.
The states where there are the highest Zika cases are New York, California, Texas and Florida. Why do
