There has been a number of journalists publicly expressing their opinions about the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil. From the point of view of an outsider, regarding all news from the sensationalist media, it is not difficult to imagine a dirty, “sweaty” country, with water puddles everywhere. The country is in fact facing a difficult time with all the consequences that have been affecting the population since the spread of the Zika virus; however, several measures have been put into practice to try to stop the Aedes Aegypt reproduction, such as the development of awareness campaigns about cleaning backyards and vacant lots to avoid creating a favorable environment for the mosquito reproduction. For journalists whose main intention is becoming popular within the media no matter at what cost, the number of people affected by the virus, especially of pregnant women who had the disease during their pregnancies, is a great topic for criticism. As Andrew Jacobs did in his article Brazilians Shrug Off Zika Fears to Revel in Carnival Fun for The New York Times, many other journalists unfortunately also decided to be offensive instead of being useful and presenting solutions to the epidemic.
