Just a quick head's up on a Zika briefing tomorrow afternoon (h/t Pathfinder on FluTrackers) by Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the NIH's NIAID, and Dr. Sylvain Aldighieri, Zika Incident Manager for PAHO (Pan American Health Organization).

This event will be live-streamed as part of a hemispheric conference on the Zika Virus.  

Dr. Fauci will be presenting the keynote address, Zika Virus: A Pandemic in Progress.  This was also the title of his hour-long video presentation nearly two months ago (see NIH Webcast: Zika Virus - A Pandemic In Progress) which is still available for viewing online.
