The White House is reportedly considering sending the military to combat female mosquitoes in a bid to combat the spread of the Zika virus.
The move comes after President Donald Trump signed an executive order to “ensure the safety and security of all Americans, including those who work in sensitive areas of the federal government.”
According to the Washington Post, the move comes in response to a “credible threat” from a male mosquito that has been identified as carrying the Zika-carrying virus.
Biden reportedly called the mosquito a “disease that has to be addressed,” according to the Post.
The White House has not yet responded to a request for comment on the plan.
