Do you know where and when Zika virus emerged? With the arrival of the 31st Olympiad in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, the location thought to be the epicenter of the Zika outbreak in the Americas, this podcast examines the origins of Zika as well as the public health concerns regarding a potential pandemic. Fellows Beth Linas, Claire Schulkey, and Shobhana Gupta describe the history of the Zika virus and how mass gatherings, such as the Olympics, could spread disease. This episode includes a guest perspective on Zika, health systems, and global health from Bruce Y. Lee, Associate Professor in the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

** A production by the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellows, the Sci on the Fly podcast seeks to encourage public dialogue on science and science policy. Complementing the Sci on the Fly blog, it helps explain and illuminate the best stories shaping the world of science policy.
