I have been reading about the Zika virus, it is a virus which can cause brain damage to unborn babies, but to make it worse, the Zika virus is also known for making the heads of the unborn babies smaller.
The CDC stated that: “There are no known locally transmitted instances of the virus in the United States, but cases have been reported in returning travelers”, but if we look further, there already has been an report from Miami which concluded that an baby was born with the Zika symptons.
The CDC states that the following countries should be avoided by pregnant females:
Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, French Guiana, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Suriname, Venezuela and Puerto Rico – and in all cases, if the travel to that country is going to take place – always inform your doctor.
Aedes aegypti mosquitoes
The Aedes aegypti mosquitoes are responsible for the transfer of the Zika virus – Aedes aegypti mosquitoes live in tropical and subtropical regions around the globe.
A mosquito that bites an infected person can then spread the disease by biting other people.
