The triple-whammy of mosquito-borne illnesses — the Zika virus, dengue fever and chikungunya — has pushed Brazil’s universal healthcare system beyond its already stretched capacity at a time when there is little money to shore it up.

Health officials handed out paper fans with information about how to avoid the virus.
