New Warning From CDC on Zika Virus Transmission

Zika virus can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus. Infection during pregnancy can cause a birth defect called microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects; Zika primarily spreads through infected mosquitoes.You can also get Zika through sex without a condom with someone infected by Zika, even if that person does not show symptoms of Zika. Since the Zika virus outbreak in the Americas began in 2015, CDC scientists and clinicians have collaborated to understand the effects of Zika virus infection on the mother and developing baby during pregnancy.

There is still much to learn about Zika virus, and CDC continues to study the effects of Zika virus infections to learn how to protect women and their babies. CDC Reports 6 Cases of Zika-Caused Birth Defects Three babies born with defects, while three pregnancies were lost or ended due to brain damage caused by virus From the WebMD Archives. The peak of the increase in birth defects potentially related to Zika occurred in February 2017 in these areas, 6 months after the reported peak of the Zika virus outbreak.

Among births included in the report, CDC scientists found about 2 out of every 1,000 babies born had a birth defect potentially related to Zika. The CDC continues to receive reports of 30 to 40 new Zika cases in pregnant women each week in the United States. “This devastating outbreak is far from over, and the consequences are. The new report more than doubles the number of known Zika-affected pregnancies in the U.S. — from 113 reported on May 11 to 279. The majority of the. The US Zika Pregnancy and Infant Registry is a collaborative and innovative system to learn about Zika virus infection during pregnancy and after birth.

Information from the Registry is used to make recommendations for healthcare providers caring for families affected by Zika. Abstract. Background: In collaboration with state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments, CDC established the U.S. Zika Pregnancy Registry (USZPR) in early 2016 to monitor pregnant women with laboratory evidence of possible recent Zika virus infection and their infants.

Methods: This report includes an analysis of completed pregnancies (which include live births and pregnancy. Prior to 2014, very few travel-associated cases of Zika virus disease were identified in the United States. In 2015 and 2016, large outbreaks of Zika virus occurred in the Americas, resulting in an increase in travel-associated cases in US states, widespread transmission in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, and limited local transmission in Florida and Texas. In 2018 and 2019, no local mosquito-borne Zika virus transmission has been reported in the continental United States. If you are traveling outside of the continental United States, see Zika Travel Information to learn about your destination..

Prevent mosquito bites when traveling: Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellent to protect yourself and your family from.

There is still not one scientific paper proving ZIKA causes Microcephaly. Brazilian Health authorities report admitting that the 4000 birth defects reported in 2015 in Pernambuco, Brazil were only at a low 430 microcephaly case. And out of that 430, only 17 were infected with ZIKA. Those 17 cases are literally what has set this whole thing off.

  • It seems every article/video is only referring to travellers. What about the people who live in the Zika infected areas? What is the recommendation for them? Not get pregnant ever?
