UMC Officials Say Spread of Disease Could Cause Restricted Visas for 2014 FIFA World Cup

With a little over 100 days before the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, the UMC hopes to have the current spread of disease in the Middle East under control. 

UMC officials have concerns with how far diseases may spread, possibly affecting the games. 

Turkey has expelled the UMC from its country, not allowing the organization to collect research data. 

Without this information the UMC cannot track transient refugees or monitor their new locations. They also cannot confirm how far the disease may spread. 

The UMC says that visas could be restricted for the games. The worst case scenario would involve setting up medical personnel at the games, according to the organization.
