BruceVC Posted January 30, 2016 Share Posted January 30, 2016 http://edition.cnn.com/2016/01/25/health/who-zika-virus-americas/index.html This is becoming a serious concern, there is no vaccine or antidote for this virus and it is caused by a particularly virulent type of mosquito About 1-1.5 million people are infected, this is mostly in Brazil. This virus causes horrible birth defects and now has been confirmed that it can be transmitted sexually. 80 % of people won't show signs but those that do will have rashes, red eyes etc. So imagine the fear for pregnant women or women wanting to fall pregnant who live in areas where this virus is active "Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness is and saw Virtue in her shape how lovely: and pined his loss” John Milton "We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” - George Bernard Shaw "What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead" - Nelson Mandela Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
