Zika virus: is Lebanon at risk?

In Lebanon no case has been reported so far. However, because of the presence in the Middle East (including Lebanon) of the mosquito Aedes aegypti/tiger-mosquito – the type of mosquito that could spread of the virus – the WHO (and the Lebanese Ministry of Health) recommend taking the appropriate preventive measures, including reducing mosquitoes through source reduction (removal and modification of breeding sites) and reducing contact between mosquitoes and people.

But is this really happening in Lebanon?!!
