If I am not mistaken, it has been know mosquitoes have carried this virus for years.
Those at risk, do as they have always said and take the appropriate steps.

We have Locusts eating crops in the Midwest, Covid nationwide, and now more Zika and West Nile?

Wasn’t there a Charleston Heston movie like this?

Don't forget that brain eating bacteria deal that lives in the warm, calm back waters in some of the coves on Havasu. Have to assume that stuff is still in the lake. Large asteroids have also been known to strike the desert of AZ.
