Although forgotten by many the Zika Virus scare is still in full affect. A poisonous Insecticide has just began to be sprayed across Miami in an attempt to prevent the Virus spreading.
The people of Miami had no choice in this, and quite rightly so they have a lot of questions which they want answering!
Florida had been using two products in the pyrethroid class of insecticides. In its aerial campaign, the state will use a chemical called Naled that has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, according to Joseph Conlon, a spokesman for the American Mosquito Control Association.
Naled is from a different class of insecticides known as organophosphates. According to the CDC, the chemical has been widely used to control mosquito populations in the United States, including in Miami, Tampa and New Orleans.
The CDC recommended the same chemical for aerial spraying in Puerto Rico, but the recommendation has been met with protests from residents concerned about its impact on health, bees, agriculture and the environment.
Miami-Dade health officials said residents do not need to take special precautions during the aerial spraying activities, but it has recommended that people with known allergies remain indoors – Reuters
Miami may not of seen any major cases of Microcephaly up until now, but spraying a few tonnes of deadly insecticide over the Environment might just do the trick!
