    'Playing hide and Zika' spurs debate among readers




    Dr. McDonnell's update since the original article was published:

    "I have since met the ophthalmologists in Brazil who examined these affected babies in Recife and published the results showing the ophthalmic problems. It seems the data increasingly supportive of the virus being the causative agent. Naturally, there is tremendous anxiety amongst pregnant women in countries afflicted with this organism who worry about the futures of their children. My belief is that organizations like the World Health Organization should have the world’s best public health experts look into this and render a scientifically based opinion as to whether holding the Games as scheduled is in the best interest of the world."
