Zika virus may spread to Europe in coming months, WHO warns | Reuters

LONDON, The Zika virus, an infectious disease linked to severe birth defects in babies, may spread into Europe as the weather gets warmer, although the risk is low, health officials said on Wednesday. In its first assessment of the threat Zika poses to the region, the World Health Organization's European office said the overall risk was small to moderate. It is highest in areas where Aedes mosquitoes thrive, in particular on the island of Madeira and the north-eastern coast of the Black Sea. #United States #India #Brazil #Europe #Portugal #markets #Diseases

Brazil rebuffs Latin American leftists over Rousseff suspension | Reuters

RIO DE JANEIRO Brazil's interim government dismissed criticism by leftist countries in Latin America, including Venezuela, Cuba and Bolivia, over the impeachment process of Dilma Rousseff, who was suspended as president by the senate. The leftist president of El Salvador on Saturday added to the regional pressure on Brazil, saying that he would not recognize the interim government and recalled his ambassador, claiming there had been "political manipulation" in Latin America's biggest country. The bickering, not rare between leftist leaders and more conservative governments at a time when much of the region is moving to the right, comes as centrist Michel Temer, Rousseff's vice president, assumes Brazil's presidency and scrambles to pull the economy out of its worst recession since the 1930s. #United States #Brazil #Venezuela #Argentina #El Salvador

BRASILIA Brazil's center-right interim government said on Friday it has the support in Congress to push through ambitious reforms to return the economy to growth and secure a permanent mandate once leftist President Dilma Rousseff's trial is up. Presidential Chief of Staff Eliseu Padilha said the government understood its mandate was only provisional at present and that portraits of Rousseff would be left hanging in government buildings. Interim President Michel Temer was sworn into office on Thursday after Rousseff was suspended from office by the Senate for up to 180 days while she is tried on charges of breaking budget rules. #Politics #Brazil #Middle East #science #Argentina #Entertainment
