It Might Be Too Late To Stop Zika, But It's Not All Bad News
The Zika virus is expected to run its course in Latin America over the next three years.By Evan Thomas | July 14, 2016
Two studies on the spread of Zika in Latin America conclude the epidemic is likely to run its course within about three years — and there isn't much anyone can do to stop it.
Health researchers at Imperial College London built a mathematical model based on "all existing data for Zika transmission across Latin America" and on behaviors of similar diseases, like Dengue fever.
Their findings suggest Zika will eventually burn out because people can't be infected twice. Once someone gets Zika, they develop antibodies.
