THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION IS DECLARING THE ZIKA OUTBREAK A GLOBAL HEALTH EMERGENCY


THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION IS DECLARING THE ZIKA OUTBREAK A GLOBAL HEALTH EMERGENCY. THE MOSQUIOTO BORNE VIRUS IS SPREADING RAPIDLY THROUGH LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN AND IS LINKED TO A SERIOUS BIRTH DEFECT CALLED MICROCEPHALY. MICROCEPHALY CAUSES BABIES TO BE BORN WITH ABNORMALLY SMALL HEADS. SO FAR IN BRAZIL, MORE THAN 41-HUNDRED SUSPECTED CASES ARE REPORTED. WHILE THE LINK IS STILL NOT SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN, THERE SEEMS TO BE A STRONG RELATIONSHIP. BRAZIL IS GETTING AGGRESSIVE TO TRY TO STOP THE SPREAD OF ZIKA. HEALTH OFFICIALS NOW HAVE ACCESS TO ANY HOME OR BUILDING TO DESTROY MOSQUITO BREEDING GROUNDS.  WORLD HEALTH OFFICIALS ESTIMATE AS MANY AS 4 MILLION CASES OF ZIKA IN THE AMERICAS OVER THE NEXT YEAR. DOCTORS IN THE U-S ARE ADVISING PREGNANT WOMEN TO RE-CONSIDER TRAVELING TO AFFECTED AREAS
