MOSCOW, Feb. 2 — Russia’s former Surgeon General said that one of the possible causes for the spread of the deadly Zika virus outbreak could be the use of biological warfare.

One of the possible causes for the spread of the deadly Zika virus outbreak could be the use of biological warfare, Russia’s former Surgeon General Gennady Onishchenko said Tuesday.

“This is being looked into….If we don’t do anything at all, this will become a man-made spread [of the disease]. This infection has been known since 1948 and it lived very quietly, but over the last few years, it began to grow,” Onishchenko told RIA Novosti. (PNA/Sputnik)
