Information about Zika virus

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

The Executive Organizing Committee of the International Citrus Congress – ICC 2016 has requested official information to the Iguassu Convention and Visitors Bureau (http://iguassu.com.br) on the local Zika virus situation to assure the well being of all delegates. The city hall of Foz do Iguaçu stated on July 13th, 2016 that "...Foz do Iguaçu does not characterize itself as an endemic area. This year, up to this moment we recorded only 2 cases classified as taken from people of Mato Grosso State."

To date, Foz do Iguaçu presents a minimum risk of Zika virus infection and it is predicted that, with the onset of winter in the southern hemisphere, the risk of acquiring the infection elsewhere in Brazil will be drastically reduced.

In May 28th, 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) published in its website that there is no need to cancel or transfer the Olympic Games from Rio de Janeiro because of Zika Virus incidence. In WHO website you can have advices about prevention. More information, please access http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2016/zika-health-advice-olympics/en/.

In addition, data from the Brazilian Ministry of Health (BMH) assures that Paraná State (where Foz do Iguaçu is located) presents only 1.5% of the reported cases in the nation. For more information, you can access the BMH website: http://portalsaude.saude.gov.br/

Based on the above, a series of congresses and conferences on different areas of interest, receiving international delegates, are confirmed to the same period of the ICC 2016: http://iguassu.com.br/calendario-de-eventos/?lang=en.

For further information on the Zika virus and travel precautions, please refer to the CDC website: http://www.cdc.gov/zika/.

For information about the congress, please visit: www.icc2016.com.

On behalf of the ICC 2016, we look forward to see you in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, from 18-23 September 2016!
