Usually, athletes at the Olympics get a ton of action; this year, there may be a slight dip in the athlete sex numbers. We know that it’s rare to contract Zika, and it’s actually pretty rare to die from the virus. Of the 683 people diagnosed with the virus in Puerto Rico, just one person died from it. But it’s still possible. As of June, 32,000 cases were reported in Rio, and there have only been four deaths. The Zika hype is the main reason why top athletes have not traveled to the first Olympic Games in South America, especially female athletes. Pregnant women with Zika are much more likely to give birth to a baby with serious birth defects that could lead to a fetal death.
