Recent Investigations Reveal More Details Concerning Zika
Considering the severity of complications that may result from infection, it’s no wonder the quickly-spreading Zika virus has made so many headlines recently.
In the spring of 2015, the presence of Zika dramatically increased in Brazil. Simultaneously, the country experienced a sizable increase in cases of microcephaly, a condition that causes abnormal brain development in unborn babies. NPR reports that the CDC is investigating in Brazil. The CDC will conduct in-depth studies to determine whether there is in fact causation between the rise in microcephaly and the rise in Zika.
