Have you ever heard of ZIKA VIRUS? Just as the female anopheles mosquito transmits malaria in the tropics, the Aedes mosquito transmits the Zika virus in Latin America. In recent times, there is a rising concern for this virus due to its wide spread.
Patients with this virus present with mild fever, rash, and headaches. Microencephaly could be seen in children born to women infected with Zika virus.
Persons who travel to these zones are to be careful and mindful of this Zika virus.
MERRY CHRISTMAS DEAR READERS.
