Zika: Out Of Sight But Not Out Of Mind For Researchers
It’s mosquito season and the Zika virus still remains a threat in many parts of the world — including here in the U.S.
This hour, we hear the latest on efforts to develop a Zika vaccine and we find out what researchers have learned since last summer about how the virus causes microcephaly in newborns.
Are you concerned about traveling to Zika affected states or countries?
And later, a Norwalk mother facing deportation has sought sanctuary in a New Haven church. What can we learn from a very similar story in Denver?
Plus, it has been 10 years since the horrific murders of a Cheshire mother and her two daughters in their suburban home. Hartford Courant reporter Alaine Griffin will join us to reflect on her experience covering the killer’s criminal trials.
