“For the Zika Virus “Local, state and federal health officials are going door-to-door to ask residents for urine samples and other information in an effort to determine how many people may be infected Additional cases are anticipated.”
It is possible that someone could have Zika without knowing since 80% of those infected have no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they can include fever, rash, joint pain and red eyes, and they can last from a few days to about a week. There is currently no treatment or vaccine for Zika.”
So, the feds and other local authorities are going DOOR TO DOOR to private residences asking (demanding?) urine samples. What if a resident does not comply? What else are they testing for? Would you comply? I can tell you right now I am not giving any local or federal agent my urine. If being arrested is the alternative, let them arrest me. I have nothing to hide, but no way would I submit to such a test if the feds showed up at my door. Some experts I’ve spoken with say they’re asking for urine under the guise of “Zika virus” when it is, in fact, for something much more sinister. This is very disturbing to me.
If the door to door demand for urine samples continues, we might have to take a little vacation (I could use one) from our home in Florida.
I believe this is unprecedented. If anyone knows of another time the feds and local authorities went door to door asking for you to hand over your own urine, please let me know.
