Exclamation ZIKA virus: WHO declares global public health emergency

Quote:
The World Health Organization designated the Zika virus a public health emergency of international concern Monday, an action it has taken only three times before and which paves the way for the mobilization of more funding and manpower to fight the mosquito-born pathogen spreading "explosively" through the Americas.

How might Zika cause brain damage in infants?
Experts aren’t certain how it happens, or even whether the virus is to blame.
The possibility that the Zika virus causes microcephaly – unusually small heads and damaged brains – emerged only in October, when doctors in northern Brazil noticed a surge in babies with the condition.

What is microcephaly?

Zika virus confirmed as cause of microcephaly birth defect, CDC says....

Quote:
Since last year, doctors in Brazil have been linking Zika infections in pregnant women to a rise in newborns with microcephaly, or an unusually small skull. Most experts were cautious about drawing a firm connection. But now the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says enough evidence is in.

2016 Olympics might be postponed due to the Zika virus.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/27/health...ials-postpone/

The country is also unstable on political grounds. They have an interim President....so amny things going wrong for Brazil at the wrong time.

A woman contracts the Zika virus from a man showing no symptoms

Quote:
(CNN)-
A man who had no idea he had Zika has given the virus to his female partner during sex, the Centers for Disease Control announced today. It's the first documented case of a person with no symptoms sexually transmitting the virus to a partner who had not traveled to an area of active Zika circulation.
