All quotes by Tom Frieden on Zika

Zika is likely to become endemic in this hemisphere.feedback

I think we'll look at this delay in time and say, How could they have waited so long?' This was so urgent. It was the very definition of an emergency.

It bites stealthily. It sneaks up on people quietly and bites them on their ankles.feedback

This is just a really, really tough mosquito to control. It truly is the cockroach of mosquitoes and we don't get rid of cockroaches easily, especially in warm southern climates. The big question is how much is it going to continue to spread in Florida and other parts of the southern U.S. and nobody knows for sure.feedback

I went through every block in that area. You've got construction sites, you've got retail sites, you've got vacant lots, you've got high-class housing and you've got housing without screens.feedback

We're in the midst of mosquito season and expect more Zika infections in the days and months to come. Florida and Miami-Dade County are taking appropriate steps to control mosquitoes and protect pregnant women. It is difficult to predict how long active transmission will continue.feedback

We projected, based on the chikungunya experience, that Zika might infect a quarter of the population in the first year and it is very much on track to do that.feedback

People in Puerto Rico are saying Zika isn't like chikungunya.feedback

This is a very difficult mosquito to control.feedback

It could be that the mosquitoes there are resistant to the insecticide being used. It could take weeks for federal and state officials to figure that out.

I know that there are people of good will in both houses of Congress, in both parties, who understand it's an emergency, who want to make it happen. Congress did the right thing with Ebola, and I'm hopeful they'll do the right thing in Zika. The sooner they do it, the better it's going to be.feedback
