The outbreak of Zika fever, a mosquito-borne viral disease, in Central and South America, continues.
Symptoms are often mild and include fever, rash, headaches, joint and muscle pains, lack of energy and eye soreness or conjunctivitis.
The CDC has issued a warning for pregnant women due to the potential for the virus to cause damage to the nervous system and brain of the developing fetus.
Pregnant women (in any trimester) or women trying to become pregnant should consider postponing travel to any area where the Zika virus is present, or if you must travel, talk to your doctor first and strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites during your trip. For those pregnant women whose sexual partners have traveled to countries in the regions of Central and South America, the CDC recommends the use of protection devises during sex (condoms) or that they practice abstinence of sexual intercourse during their full pregnancy.
There is no antiviral treatment for the Zika virus or vaccine against it; therefore, anyone travelling to infected areas is advised to prevent mosquito bites by covering their skin with treated clothing and applying insect repellents. Please refer to the CDC website for more advice on these precautions and a list of infected counties.
