2016: Zika virus

As Brazil prepared to host the Olympic Games in 2016, an outbreak of the Zika virus was reported in the city of Recife. As news outlets spread the news, a number of health officials called on the government to postpone or cancel the events. In contrast, the World Health Organization declared it safe to proceed. In this photo by Mario Tama, a mother holds her baby who suffers from microcephaly, a birth defect linked to the Zika virus.
