Zika Virus

We watched a video in class on the Zika Virus and we were asked to write an opinion piece on it. Here is mine:

Why should we be worried about the Zika Virus if it hasn’t killed anyone yet?

We should be aware about the Zika Virus but not worried because it hasn’t killed anyone yet. Pregnant women should stay away from places affected by this virus carried by the Aedes mosquito, as it could harm their babies. The other problem is that Brazil has been affected by the Virus and Olympians could be affected and as well as the whole Olympics. But Olympians aren’t concerned about being bitten by the mosquito so why should we be?
