The Zika virus continues to be in the news and a lot of questions face responders, especially those who might be deployed to a foreign country in which the Zika virus is endemic. Disaster Podcast co-hosts Jamie Davis (the Podmedic), and Sam Bradley are joined by noted virologist Vincent Racaniello, PhD from Columbia University in New York.
Vince is a podcaster and virus expert. He talks with Jamie and Sam about the origins of the Zika virus, how it is transmitted and what the real risks are to individuals from this disease. Make sure you check out Vince’s excellent podcasts at Microbe.tv.
