We will just have to move to Canada... Good thing their dollar is low.
Hard toss-up, which one is worse?

But the vadai is not dangerous. Most people don't even show someone
Brazil says Zika is also linked with Guillain-Barré, so that may not be wise.

Interesting. They now say to wait six months. Curious if that timeline will go up

Unless you're planning on making another baby this year though, probably don't need to cancel. But IANAD.

Too much uncertainty about how long the virus really stays within the male body IMO.

CDC is saying 6 months, but regardless, by that point you would have passed it along to your wife and she would have immunity, no?
PUTPAC your OB and let us know :)

So at what point does a woman get immunity?

PUTPAC your OB
Or pediatrician.
Frankly though it'll probably be guesswork. There are no studies into Zika that exist.
