Risk assessment of Zika virus being brought to the U.S. from Rio Summer Olympics 2016

The statistic shows how concerned U.S. survey respondents were about the risk of Americans traveling to Brazil for the Olympics then bringing back the Zika virus to the United States. 31 percent of survey respondents said that they thought it was a big risk that Americans traveling to the Olympics in Rio would bring back the Zika virus with them to the United States. In 2015, Brazil saw a sharp rise in cases of microcephaly among newborns believed to be connected with the spreading of the Zika virus.
