TUESDAY, May 9, 2017 (HealthDay News)—U.S. women traveling to areas where the Zika virus is circulating might be less likely to be infected than expected, but risk remains, a new study suggests. Only one out of 185 pregnant women at a Los Angeles clinic who visited an active Zika area between January and August 2016 wound up infected, researchers report. By Dennis Thompson HealthDay Reporter. TUESDAY, May 9, 2017 (HealthDay News) U.S. women traveling to areas where the Zika virus is circulating might be less likely to be infected than expected, but risk remains, a new study suggests..
Only one out of 185 pregnant women at a Los Angeles clinic who visited an active Zika area between January and August 2016 wound up infected, researchers report. That’s a lot lower than researchers initially thought, and it means that some 70%-80% of pregnant women who get Zika don’t transmit the infection. Zika Threat Is Worse Than Initially Thought, Health Authorities Say The outbreak of the mosquito-borne Zika virus in Latin America and the Caribbean, which began in May 2015 in Brazil, has raised concerns about a wider spread of the disease across the Western Hemisphere and the impact it may have on businesses and their employees.
Last week, Dr. Schuchat admitted that Zika virus “ seems to be a bit scarier than we initially thought.” Her unusual comments may be aimed partly at Congress, which has been reluctant to fund Zika control measures. But there are several reasons that public health officials are more nervous about Zika now than they were a few months ago. 1 These countries have a potential risk of Zika, but we do not have accurate information on the current level of risk. As a result, detection and reporting of new outbreaks may be delayed.
2 Because Aedes aegypti mosquitoes (the mosquitoes that most commonly spreads Zika) are present in these countries, Zika has the potential to be present, along with other mosquito-borne infections. However, recent research has been focusing on the persistence of viable ZIKV in semen following infection [1-3]. Evidence suggests that the presence of viable virus, in contrast to the presence of viral RNA alone, indicates Zika’s ability to cause infection. The amount of time viable virus persists in semen is lower than originally thought. Zika virus (ZIKV) (pronounced / ˈ z iː k ə / or / ˈ z ɪ k ə /) is a member of the virus family Flaviviridae.
It is spread by daytime-active Aedes mosquitoes, such as A. aegypti and A. albopictus. Its name comes from the Ziika Forest of Uganda, where the virus was first isolated in 1947. Zika virus is related to the dengue, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, and West Nile viruses. The greatest likelihood of acquiring Zika virus infection is in a country with risk, however, the individual risk of infection is likely to be lower if mosquito bite avoidance measures are followed. “Where there is a range of possibilities, from no Zika to low-level background Zika, we’re going to tell you there’s been virus there before; it could still be there.
If you’re a zero-risk.
