A virus, carried by mosquitoes, broke out in South America last year, has been now spreading to Africa and may hit Europe this summer. The name of this virus is Zika.

 

How dangerous can Zika be? Researches and many new born babies have shown that there is a link between the Zika virus and Microcephaly, where babies are born with abnormally small heads because of restricted brain development. To date, more and more diseases that have been found by doctors and also in many cases, have the connection with Zika, especially for babies in the wombs. Around 2.2 billion people are at the risky area of infecting Zika virus, and the number is now growing. However, neither researchers nor doctors can predict the further damage by the virus and vaccine of anti-Zika is putting on research but hasn’t been invented.

 

To prevent Zika, pregnant women are suggested staying at home, covering up the bodies and using repellent to keep the mosquitoes away from them. The Military were called in to kill mosquitoes outdoors.

 

On the other side, Rio Olympics is going to open in Brazil the place where Zika virus was first detected in 2015. There is no suspension of the Olympic Game according to the official announcement.
