    'Playing hide and Zika' spurs debate among readers




    Dear Dr. McDonnell,

    You seem to be up on so many of the same issues that interest me and probably so many others who stay silent. Just a tidbit: the Brazilian flag has green to represent its forests and hope, yellow for its gold (meaning many riches), blue for its big skies, no red to signify lack of bloodshed in wars. I think there actually was some bloodshed but much less than most countries.

    Because of travel, the world is small. We have already imported the virus to the United States. The risk during the Olympics is not only to the competitors, but many will carry the virus home with them. It is a world problem. I think the Olympics should be cancelled and money spent on eradication of the mosquito.
