Zika is the small name for a virus having a big impact across the globe due to the potential threat to pregnant women and their babies. Discovered in Africa in the 1950’s the Zika virus was previously contained to the equatorial belt in Asia and Africa. In recent years the virus has gained momentum and has spread to the Americas and the Caribbean, causing pandemic outbreaks in numerous countries. Though typically a mild illness in adults, recent evidence suggests Zika infections during pregnancy have the potential to cause microcephaly and other poor outcomes for the newborn.
Currently there are no medicines to cure or vaccinations to prevent Zika, and research is still being conducted on the virus’s spread and its human impact. With no known cure or preventative vaccine, the surest way to safeguard your health is through awareness and taking preventative steps.
