What is Zika virus?
Simply put, Zika virus is a contagion that is generally transmitted through a mosquito bite. Before 2015, the Zika outbreaks typically occurred in Africa, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. Then in May 2015, doctors and scientists found Zika-carrying mosquitoes in Brazil and other countries. People that have traveled to areas that have a known Zika outbreak can contract the disease and be a host and carry it to new areas. In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control has no reports of any local-born Zika-carrying mosquitoes in the United States. However, it is always best to error on the side of caution. You can always find the most up-to-date areas of Zika outbreaks on the CDC website.. Remember, the highest security against any mosquito-borne illness is a dead mosquito.
The Zika virus can be transmitted in a number of ways. If you have traveled to a Zika infected area you are experiencing the symptoms listed below, then you should seek medical attention. The symptoms include:
* Red, swollen eyes
* Mild Fever
* Skin Rash
* Muscle and/or joint pain
One of the most common and devastating effects of Zika is when a mother unintentionally passes the virus to her unborn baby. It is thought that Zika is highly responsible for the birth defect called encephalopathy. This is when a baby’s brain is not fully developed and can sadly result in brain damage and babies with very small heads. At this time, there is no medical vaccine for the treatment of Zika, so the protection to shield you and your family is eliminating mosquitoes and staying up-to-date on the progression of Zika outbreaks throughout the world.
