The Spread of Zika Virus
The current Zika Virus outbreak has raised great concern worldwide as it continues to spread across South America and other regions.
In less than 9 months, the Zika virus has infected 1.3 million in Brazil. With a single bite from an infected mosquito, the virus spreads into one’s blood stream and poses a severe threat when transmitted to a fetus from a pregnant woman. This has lead to 3,893 suspected cases in Brazil of fetuses with microcephaly, a fetal deformation associated with Zika virus.
