A scientific study published today indicates at least 50 cities across the U.S. that will remain at risk for Zika virus this summer. The models take into account weather conditions, poverty, and other factors (travel, etc.) linked to Zika outbreaks. In an effort to create a timeline to assist in vector-control planning, research models illustrate the abundance and population potential of the Aedes aegypti mosquito—the species of mosquito known to transmit the troubling disease. According to the study, Washington D.C. can expect the highest abundance of the Aedes aegypti mosquito between the months of July to September.
