4th pregnant women tests positive for Zika in Florida


There have been nine confirmed cases of pregnant women with Zika infections in the USA, and the virus has spread to more than 30 countries since its first cases in Brazil last May.This would be the first virus transmitted by mosquitoes to be linked with neurological effects in the foetus of an infected woman, says Dr. Richard Temes, who was not involved in the study, and who is the director at the Center for Neurocritical Care at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York.- Three of the women have delivered babies; two of the newborns are apparently healthy, and one was born with microcephaly.Zika virus is associated with birth defects in newborn babies, leading to inadequate brain development, and poses the biggest threat to women of childbearing age. Friday, the CDC began investigating 10 additional reports of pregnant travelers with the Zika virus.CDC has added more than two dozen countries throughout the Americas, Caribbean and the Pacific to the travel warning list, specifically cautioning pregnant woman to avoid visiting Zika-affected areas.
