The US declares a “state of emergency” in Puerto Rico due to Zika virus


Another way to keep “hurting: destroy the tourism industry too!!
“It is also interesting that, even as the US espouses “concern” over public health in Puerto Rico, and declares a public health “emergency,” this same US has stopped all monitoring of the water supply of Puerto Rico, as of July 1, 2016.”

WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

Puerto Rico is officially in a “state of emergency,” declared on August 12 by the Obama administration, because of the Zika virus.

As noted by the New York Times, many island residents believe the “threat from Zika” is exaggerated.

The Times also reported that “it was not clear if the declaration would have much effect.”

However, one effect that it will have, is to hurt the tourism industry in Puerto Rico.

It is difficult to imagine Puerto Rico as a “preferred” vacation spot, when the US has declared the entire island to be suffering from a “public health emergency.”

It is also interesting that, even as the US espouses “concern” over public health in Puerto Rico, and declares a public health “emergency,” this same US has stopped all monitoring of the water supply of Puerto Rico, as of July 1, 2016.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
