How to stop the Zika virus from spreading in the US
In the US, the virus has killed more than half of the roughly 1.2 million people who have tested positive for the virus so far.
A new study suggests the Zika strain could infect more people than previously thought.
It’s a problem that researchers say is already becoming more severe as people are getting tested for the disease more frequently.
In the meantime, the country is still catching its breath.
“I think the problem that we’re facing now is that we have to deal with the pandemic and the pandemics are always there,” said Daniel Gross, director of the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health.
“We are dealing with a lot of people who don’t have the best information.”
Gross is the lead author of a study published Monday in the journal Lancet that looked at the rate of new infections in the United States, which he said could be a problem for the US government to manage the pandemaker.
Gross said that if the number of infections in one region were higher than in others, it could lead to people living in those areas becoming infected more often.
It could also make it harder for the CDC to monitor the spread of the virus, which is currently spreading across parts of the world that have had previous outbreaks.
There are some positives to the new study, though, including the fact that more people are living in areas where there is more testing and that more testing is done in places where there has been previous outbreaks, Gross said.
“The study showed a lot more information about the pandewise than the previous study,” Gross said, adding that he’s encouraged that more information is being gathered and shared.
The CDC said it is “working with the public to provide more information to help inform decisions.”
It will also be releasing more information on the vaccine development process.
The new study looked at data from March and April of 2016.
In April, more than 6,000 people tested positive.
In March, about 6,400 people tested negative.
The most recent data showed that only about a third of the people tested in March had tested positive by the end of May.
Researchers are trying to figure out why the virus is more active in March than in other months.
It was one of the reasons they said the virus spread in March.
“It was really not a surprise to us, but the fact the virus was more active, and the fact it was spreading more, made us think that it was more likely that it could be circulating in the population,” Gross added.
“At the same time, it’s also a really exciting time to be thinking about the vaccine.”
Gross said he’s optimistic that the vaccine will be ready by next year, although he cautioned that it’s important to get the vaccine out quickly because of the current threat of other pandemic diseases, including Ebola and the Zika outbreak.
“Right now, we’re trying to get vaccines out to people as fast as we can, so we need to make sure we have the vaccine ready to go in the next few months,” he said.
The vaccine could be tested in humans in about six weeks, but that could be faster if testing takes place more frequently, Gross added, saying that if testing for the vaccine is delayed it could make it more difficult for the government to control the virus.
“There are some things that you can do to speed up testing, but there are also things that could actually slow things down, so you’re trying not to make that mistake,” he added.
The study was based on a study of nearly 1,200 people who had been tested for Zika in March and March of this year, but who had not been tested since November.
Researchers did not know whether the new information affected the results.
