Rio 2016 hope Zika decline in time, suggest to close window

One day after World Health Organization(WHO) declared an international emergency over the Zika virus, Rio 2016 organizing committee believed the problem will clear up in time for the Games and suggested athletes and tourists to close window.

At a press conference held on Tuesday, Rio Olympic organizers are wary of Zika virus but also confident it will decline with the arrival of winter time during the Games. The dry and cool weather in south hemisphere Rio at that time will help to decrease the mosquitos.
