has chosen its tactical attack on us in a very damaging way. Also because the children's immune system is very weak before they are born and even after, then this ailment must be of grave concern to us all, and we should not think or say "Oh, it's just a problem over there in South America". Because we are one specie, one family, one connected race and when something takes place "Over there", it will run to "Over here" within a week. And so we all have to unite, like we always do, and do our best to go on the offensive to destroy this Zika virus, before it gets the chance to fully create a root system in the newly born and then adapt its defenses through our DNA, because by then it will impede us for many generations.
So What is Zika virus, and how does it spread?
Zika virus was first identified in 1947 in Uganda, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For decades, it was considered a minor-league virus, especially compared to major killers such as malaria and dengue. Until recently, Zika was limited to a narrow belt of equatorial Africa and Asia. Zika is spread by the Aedes mosquito. The virus doesn't spread from person to person, like the flu. But mosquitoes who bite an infected person can spread it to their next victims.
The CDC issued a travel alert (Level 2-Practice Enhanced Precautions) for people traveling to regions and certain countries where Zika virus transmission is ongoing. This alert follows reports in Brazil of an increase in the number of infants born with unusually small heads and other poor pregnancy outcomes during a time of increased Zika virus activity. The association between Zika virus and birth defects has not been firmly established and is being investigated further.
What are the symptoms of Zika Virus?
The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, or conjunctivitis (red eyes). Symptoms can last from several days to a week. There is no vaccine to prevent and no medicine to treat Zika virus infection.
What protections can one take against Zika Virus?
When traveling to countries where Zika virus has been reported, all travelers should take steps to prevent mosquito bites, such as using use insect repellent, wearing long sleeves and pants, and staying in places with air conditioning or that use window and door screens.
