Mosquito Pools in South Georgia Test Positive for Rare, Deadly Virus

Health officials say two mosquito pools in South Georgia have tested positive for Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE).

EEE is a rare virus that’s spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito.

While there are only a few cases reported each year in the United States, EEE has an approximate 30% fatality rate.

And many survivors have ongoing neurological problems.

Upon learning about these South Georgia mosquito pools, I instantly remembered something that has recently occurred in neighboring Florida.

Bill Gates-funded Oxitec released genetically modified mosquitos into the Sunshine State.

Is there a connection?
