The Zika virus is for sale online courtesy of the Rockefeller Foundation.
The virus has been around for over 60 years and is marketed by two companies: LGC Standards (in the UK) and ATCC ( in the US).
Here is a link to the site: Zika virus (ATCC® VR-84™)
Apparently the zika virus started in Uganda back in 1947 where is was found in monkeys..
Blood samples were taken from the monkeys and freeze-dried and are now on sale… presumably for researchers to use in vaccine testing.
The institute has a field station at the Zika Forest near Entebbe.
In 1947 scientists placed a rhesus macaque in a cage in the Zika Forest, near the institute in Entebbe, Uganda.
The monkey developed a fever, and researchers isolated from its serum a transmissible agent that was first described as Zika virus in 1952.
