Forum friends.. Please I don't wish to cause any kind of mayhem but. Worldwide transpotation of plants ,fruits and veg have hit the news. Worldwide strange things are taking place. Universally global warming perhaps tops the bill. Sadly so many poo poo such an event. So be it . If I might solicite my friend punkdoc.
The zika virus has hit the headlines. Briefly quoting from what comes across my desk daily. From WHO. The world Health Oganisation. A blood donor was suddeny infected. Thankfully, he/she contacted the medical authorities. Test were carried out and it was found that the Zika virus coudld also be spread via blood transfusions. So folks if you think you might be at risk. Contact your GP>

See original post
Then Don't cause mayhem!
Aedes type mosquitoes are found in the UK but not Aedes aegypti or Aedes albopictus. Aedes mosquitoes are not the type of mosquito that have caused problems.
Neither the Zika virus, nor its principal mosquito vectors, are currently found in the UK.
Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, and other mosquito species that may be capable of transmitting Zika virus, are not found in the UK.
