Despite Zika Threat, Summer Olympics Expected To Go On As Planned
A Canadian doctor warns holding the games could cause "a full-blown global health disaster."By Matt Moreno | May 12, 2016
It doesn't look like the International Olympic Committee has any plans to move the Summer Games from Rio de Janeiro despite warnings about the Zika virus.
Olympics officials say even though the mosquito-borne Zika virus is causing widespread concerns, the games are still expected to take place there in August.
The IOC's response comes shortly after a Canadian professor's article in the Harvard Public Health Review urged the games be moved or risk "a full-blown global health disaster."
