I was just thinking about my exploration of Australia by rail plus resulting Insect Bites, and it seems Big Pharma is using The Zika Virus as a marketing opportunity for Insect Repellent chemicals when most of the Jet Set are Skiing in perhaps one of the average coldest Northern Hemisphere winters on Record !
I arrived in Sydney in the first third of November 1987, then spent a week around the metropolitan area before heading to Perth via Melbourne then overnight to Adelaide thence Cab Ride to Port Augusta, Kalgoorlie late nigh Red Light district tour. On arrival at Perth I got a dirt cheap basic hotel room opposite the 3ft 6 original Central Station, and whilst I had minimal insect bites from my Arrival in Aussie and the cabin insect spray, with the window open and no could burning I got bitten to death. Anyway I must have built up some resistance as I was never bothered by mossys much again for the next 3 months, however, back walking down the sheer path at Wentworth Falls and back I got bit by a Sand fly on my ankle !
By the time I set off on my Queensland Expedition first thin New Year, my right ankle felt like I had slightly sprained it, and I though I was coming down with the flu, but daylight to Brisbane thence overnight to Townsvile my ankle was OK for walking, flu not apparent anymore. I did get bitten by an occasional mossy ( big one Aussies know the name ) but it was not until my 1991 New Zealand Trip during the Gulf War until I was seriously bitten by mossys again.
I stayed with a relative of mine at Whakatane up on the hillside where she and her WW2 Radar technician turned TV engineer had retired, and they had a concrete bath in the garden for their Bulldog Archie, sunk into the ground just outside my bedroom. Anyway it was filled up in a big storm and once again I got bitten to death overnight, but the microscopic Sand Flies in the dry riverbed at Crystal Creek cafe on the Milford Sound road were far worse !
The above may suffice for now but moving onto Sexual Transmission as when I was undercover on Healey Ward Chorley there was a handsome guy on there ( Who worked in Aerospace ) having a nervous breakdown because he had been caught raping 90 women he met via Plenty of Fish, I’m not sure of the chronology, but I recall a big fuss in the media about a woman from the North Wales area involved in a court case fighting for life of her looked similar to Zika deformed babies, fed by a tube through her nose kid. She lived on a posh estate on full benefits. brand new Motability Car, her husband had left her and ( without actually admitting it ) was whinging about how she would become destitute if her disabled child was allowed to die by the evil NHS doctors.
Perhaps her husband had left her because he found out she had been cheating on him, and perhaps the same principle applies to POSH Dating Sites and Escort Services at International Sporting Events, Corporate conferences, especially those involving the Carbon Dioxide causes Run Away Global Warming political Oligarchy !
