I don't know what being Jewish has anything to do with it. But I always wondered this about Zika. Everyone stays away for those countries but it's not like everyone moved out and are not having kids anymore
To not transmit zika you need to use a condom which the jewish community has an issue with, and also jewish families tend to have more children so its not like they will wait 7 years for zika to go away vs others will for the most part just hold off on having children for now

Same thing people in Miami did, they lived with the risk. It's different than traveling somewhere.

Also in places like Puerto Rico with high Zika rates there's a good chance most people already got Zika and now have immunity. That's fine for the locals, but mosquitoes can still transmit.

Bottom line, ask your Dr.

makes sense. I was just curious I obviously wouldn't risk it.

It looks like the CDC has removed Zika alert from the entire Caribbean

Link?
This map seems to have been updated to show that anything with purple indicates the country has had zika cases in the past but no current outbreak. Caribbean is still purple. Now I don't know how they define outbreak, but where do you see Caribbean is removed?

Here you have for example Aruba the page shows
"This notice has been removed"
not sure exactly what changed, maybe just the way they categorize it has changed

It's very unclear. Now the CDC only tells you if there was past or current, it doesn't break down which have current cases.

If you click Quintana Roo Mexico, you get this:

"We do not have accurate information on the current level of risk. There may be delays in detection and reporting of new outbreaks."

Cayman and Bahamas are Zika free per CDC
