No Zika In Wynwood For 26 Days, Warning Could Be Lifted This Month

No new cases of locally transmitted have been reported in Wynwood for 25 days, the Wynwood Business Improvement District announced yesterday.

If the streak continues, the CDC has informed the Wynwood BID that the advisory will be lifted on September 19.

Zika was only every being actively transmitted by mosquitoes in a single, 500 square foot business in Wynwood. Officials nevertheless deemed it necessary to create a one square mile warning zone.

Despite the lack of new cases, Zika could always return in the same way that it was first brought in. CDC and state officials also declared an active transmission zone in Miami Beach (with mosquitoes trapped there confirmed to be carrying the disease), and are also investigating other cases throughout the state.

500 square foot area? This has to be a small section of Wynwood Yard, right? I read that two of their employees were infected. Perhaps the remainder were patrons?

Yup, indeed. The word Zika is Swahiliy too. The virus was first isolated in April 1947 from a rhesus macaque monkey that had been placed in a cage in the Zika Forest of Uganda. All bad things come from there.

WYnwood is a ghost town compared to what it was.

It was made up, this was a clever way to get Wynwood on a global map of places to visit when you’re down in Miami. Now the entire world knows where Wynwood is, not just people that live in Miami or NYC, you couldn’t buy that kind of PR if you invested $100M.

You think there weren’t actual cases of Zika transmitted in Wynwood? You think it was all just made up? You are dumb.
