(KWWL) -

A group of more than 100 doctors and researchers have called for the 2016 Summer Olympics to be moved out of Rio, due to concerns about the Zika virus.

The Olympics are scheduled to start on August 5th, just over two months from now.

Officials are saying that if the Olympics cannot be moved to a new place, they should be postponed until a later time when the virus is better understood and more manageable.
