As Obama Traveled To Cuba, CDC Issues Travel Advisory Telling Americans Not To Go There

Via The Centers For Disease Control:

CDC is working with other public health officials to monitor for ongoing Zika virus‎ transmission. Today, CDC posted a Zika virus travel notice for Cuba. CDC has issued travel notices (level 2, “practice enhanced precautions”) for people traveling to destinations with Zika. For a full list of affected countries/regions, visit

As more information becomes available, CDC travel notices will be updated. Travelers to areas with cases of Zika virus infection are at risk of being infected with the Zika virus. Mosquitoes that spread Zika are aggressive daytime biters. They also bite at night. There is no vaccine or medicine for Zika virus. The best way to avoid Zika virus infection is to prevent mosquito bites.

Some travelers to areas with Zika will become infected while traveling but will not become sick until they return home and they might not have any symptoms. To help stop the spread of Zika, travelers should use insect repellent for three weeks after travel to prevent mosquito bites.

Some people who are infected do not have any symptoms. People who do have symptoms have reported fever, rash, joint pain, and red eyes. The sickness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon and the number of deaths is low. Travelers to areas with Zika should monitor for symptoms or sickness upon return. If they become sick, they should tell their healthcare professional when and where they have traveled.

Wild Thing's comment.............

I guess we also better expect Obama's apology for America while he is in C uba, he does it every where else.

I watched on the news Obama and his family walking through Old Havana carrying umbrellas because of the heavy downpour. I also noticed the Secret Service agents without umbrellas walking beside them in the heavy rain.

He has no concern for his security. Couldn't he postpone his photo op street walk until it stopped raining for the sake of those who will take a bullet for him? Just like jetting off to Hawaii before Christmas. He could care less about the "peons" around him.
