05/31/16 - Tuesday’s Topical Currents updates news concerning Zika virus, and containing its spread in South Florida. Ours is the leading area of reported U.S. Zika cases.

The rainy season is underway, which means an upswing in mosquito breeding.  We’ll hear from Miami-Dade’s Mosquito Control Manager and learn more about efforts to curtail the mosquito population. Our guests are: University of Miami professor of medicine and Chief of Infectious Diseases, Dr. Mario Stevenson; and Miami-Dade County Mosquito Control Manager Chalmers Vasquez.

Also, medical information about possible symptoms, diagnoses and treatments.

That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday at 1pm.
