There is never a good time for an epidemic, but Brazilian President
Dilma Rousseff will agree that the outbreak of mosquito-borne Zika in
her country could not have come at a worse time.
Rousseff, who is facing impeachment charges, has been the target of massive rallies in Brazil at which protesters have demanded her ouster. Brazil is facing one of its worst recessions ever and Rousseff has been accused of doing too little too late to address this severe economic downturn.
