Frightening words on the Zika virus from a reliable source: a New York Times science reporter who has covered virulent global infections for decades. ... Why the epidemic appeared in Brazil remains a mystery, but there is no mystery about the havoc the virus causes. ... The race is on, McNeil relates, to fathom how the virus causes its damage and to develop treatments and ultimately a vaccine. … Credit McNeil for a succinct summary of Zika to date, but be forewarned: this is a fast-breaking story, and the last word has yet to come, including how Zika will affect the American population as it journeys north.
