Venezuela always had a dysfunctional economic system (I went down there on business a lot 20 years ago before Chavez) but things have deteriorated and the health care system seems to be collapsing. This could lead to a large number of zika cases and the rapid spread of the disease. 1. Will Venezuela become a true "failed state" a la Somalia, Yemen, Libya, etc. 2. Will this lead to the virus becoming harder to control? 3. Will Americans have second thoughts about supporting an avowed "socialist" in the face of clear evidence showing where socialism leads?
