Zika Virus Continues to Surprise

As of August 24th, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported 2,517 confirmed cases of Zika virus in the US. While there is still much uncertainty about the extent of the Zika virus transmission, with each passing day it continues to surprise.
