Special condoms for the Australian athletes who go at the Olympics in Rio


Brazil has been the epicenter of the outbreak of the mosquito-borne disease, which is blamed for birth defects in babies born to women infected with the virus and for the rare but serious neurological disorder Guillain-Barre Syndrome.Sexual transmission of the virus has contributed to it spreading. “The health and well-being of the team comes first,” said the Olympic team’s chef de mission Kitty Chiller. Last week, the World Health Organization advised pregnant women not to travel to Rio and urged athletes and visitors to take precautions to avoid infection by Zika. The United States, which sends the biggest delegation to Rio, has formed a group that will establish best practice and information for athletes and officials traveling to Brazil.
