But reports of new suspected Zika cases have dropped 87 percent nationally from February to May following a publicity campaign urging people to eliminate breeding sites. The Aedes aegypti mosquito that transmits Zika lays its eggs near standing water, in places such as flowerpots, buckets or old tires.Few experts doubt there will be a further decline in cases in the next few months in Rio.

It’s something that can unify this country,” Kaepernick told reporters in late August, though for better or worse it did no such thing.In fact, Kaepernick initiated a national debate, a man who stood up by sitting down, and in the months since in early September Kaepernick began kneeling, rather than sitting, and he has done so for every game since it has made us think and made us angry.
