Zika alarm sparks run on supply of scientific virus samples | Reuters

LONDON Porton Down, the British government center famous for its Cold War germ warfare research, said on Wednesday it was working hard to keep up with demand for Zika virus samples as scientists around the world scramble for them. The National Collection of Pathogenic Viruses (NCPV) is one of a handful of centers worldwide that make viruses available to authorized scientists - and not all of them have managed to satisfy their customers. The non-profit ATCC in Virginia, for example, says on its website that Zika virus is currently on backorder pending production of a new lot, following recent high demand. #Sports #India #Business #Middle East #Health #markets #opinion

Republican senator - Obama administration already has funds for Zika | Reuters

WASHINGTON The Obama administration has no immediate need for funding to combat the Zika virus because money remains unspent from fighting the two-year-long Ebola outbreak, a member of the Republican Senate leadership said on Tuesday. Lawmakers are debating what resources are needed as Zika spreads in South and Central America and the Caribbean and raises fears of the possibility of birth defects. But while Democrats joined with the administration to call for more than $1.8 billion in emergency funding, Republicans say there is no need for immediate action and intend to have hearings on Capitol Hill, including a meeting with U.S. #United States #India #Business #Health #Diseases
