Anatomy of the Zika

Terror (n., from Latin: terrorem)  An object of fear, cause of alarm; terrible news.

Said object (of the Aedes aegypti variant) is seen from its right. It is recognizable from its white markings and the dainty knot securing its dynamite belt.

Before us we have a possible cause, i.e. an explanation or perception of one; the risk, whatever the cause, the prospects and central to it all: the fear. Each component a factor to society. Luc Descheemaeker has laid out the full story before us.

ETA February 11, 2016: Yet again a situation of poisoning? In this instance of the toxic chemical pyriproxifen applied to drinking water, with an attempt to direct the interest away from those actually culpable by pointing the finger in the direction of mosquitos?

Only, what may be to be another hoax, does not diminish the cartoon before us.

On the contrary, the dynamite belt tied to the mosquito exposes the very anatomy of a hoax.
