Update on Zika
There are no cases of Zika in Abadiânia and the town is spraying vacant lots. Abadiânia has always been impeccable with the treatment of water. The Zika is affecting the poorer areas of the East Coast of Brazil the most where there is a lot of trash and water collecting in cans, old tires, and plastic containers being dumped and filling with rain water. The army is now assisting with the inspections, clean ups and education.
Heather shares that she feels very safe. There have always been health checks in Abadiânia for mosquitos during the rainy season.
