Mosquito Hunter

In the midst of political and financial crisis, Brazil is facing historic outbreaks of several mosquito-borne illnesses. One of the diseases, Zika, has infected an estimated 1.5 million in the country and is linked to severe birth defects in children. Racing to contain new infections, the government has deployed hundreds of thousands of health workers throughout the country to eradicate mosquitos.
