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.

 

Zika can spread from mother to fetus during pregnancy and around the time of birth and can cause birth defects and other problems in infants. If you are pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, speak to your health care provider about Zika precautions and testing.
