“It’s important to note that all countries which have reported, detected dengue and chikungunya virus outbreaks during the last years, that’s 15 years, are considered at risk for having outbreaks of Zika,” said Sylvain Aldighieri, Zika incident manager for Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO).
It is a very large portion of the territory from middle America to Latin America to the North of Argentina and in the Caribbean.
5 counties have reported serious defects like the microcephaly that causes brain damage and an abnormally small head in babies born to mothers infected during pregnancy.
Zika is said to be transmitted primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito, which also spreads chikungunya and dengue.
There is no such way we can detect the mosquito who has Zika virus in it, development is being made the terms of better medication for the same by many pharmaceutical companies.
