In October 2015 Brazil reported an association between Zika virus infection and microcephaly. In February 2016, as infection moved rapidly through the range occupied by Aedes mosquitos in the Americas, WHO declared that Zika infection associated with microcephaly and other neurological disorders constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).By the start of February 2016, local transmission of Zika infection had been reported from more than 20 countries and territories in the Americas, and an outbreak numbering thousands of cases was under way in Cabo Verde, western Africa. I have four pairs so I would recommend this product. Perhaps a small gamble to buy on line, if you don't know your 'Havaiana size*, but get it right and you'll never buy another make of flip flops again. I got the size wrong at first, but soon replaced with Amazon prime. Bought for partner, comfortable, as usual quality product from Havaianas, fit as expected, not to tight across the top with give in the strap when walking so flip flop does not rub, make sure you use the size guide when ordering.
WHO continuously adds to Zika virus: News and updates with the latest information available on this public health emergency.
Providing these one survive, then I am happy The items arrived damaged with a disgusting glue/ gunk on the toe section of the flip flop. The packaging was slightly damaged - but that would be ok - it's the fact that one of the flip flops has what seems to be either a large marker pen stain or nail polish blob on the one - not what I call acceptable! The sizes are very small as I am a 9.5 uk shoe size and I needed a size 11.5 and that then only brings them only just past the end of my toe,and I don't have long toes.
I can't be bothered returning as it is not worth the time for the cost.
