Colombia timing update...

Colombia actually removed a Zika virus positive mother from the number of microcephaly cases this past reporting week. 

Two cases still remain and there have now passed 186 days (6mths 3days) since Colombia reported it's first local Zika cases (16OCT2016).

Remembering that Brazil first reported positive (but unconfirmed) laboratory tests for Zika virus disease on 29APR2015 and started reporting foetal anomalies on the rise (n=141), in the form of microcephaly, 30OCT2015 (184 days, or 6 months later)
