And the CDC has learned this:

Quote:
Transmission

Mosquitoes: Zika virus is transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito.

Mother to child: A mother can pass on the virus to her fetus during pregnancy or her newborn at birth.

Blood and sex: A man can spread the virus through sex. There are blood transfusion cases outside the US.

CDC: Transmission and risks..... This after CDC is a link at the site..
Alone with most recent news and world map of this emerging threat to Womankind... The search page I used, pick as there is quite a lot to take in.

I hear about this Zika Virus about 3 times a week on my local news one half hour program. And in some weeks even more is mentioned daily. Yet one has to do some searching when online to know more, why is that?

5 things the world has learned about Zika so far


STAT Helen Branswell,1 day ago.. 1 / 6 Pages...

Only months ago, the world’s knowledge about the Zika virus was pretty paltry.

So scant, in fact, that Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, tweeted a picture of what he called “50 years of neglect” — a modest pile of scientific papers, not much thicker than a slim paperback. That was the sum total of Zika science.

In the intervening weeks, researchers in labs the world over have shifted their focus to the Zika virus — and that work is already gleaning results. Meanwhile, the virus’s march through the Americas is adding real world epidemiological evidence to bolster our understanding of what humankind can expect from Zika.

Many mysteries remain. But here are some things we’ve learned.

Question Re: The Zika Virus, DATA & INFO.

Maybe the Pope will allow birth control so women don't give birth to deformed babies?

Maybe, but I kind of doubt it Topcat,

I guess much of this lack of knowledge is due to our current generation of lazy, non inspired, me first and forget all else, newest generation.

Yet others might be mis-informed also. So read this please.

1 in 3 Americans mistakenly believe Zika is spread by coughing


USA TODAY Liz Szabo, 1 day ago.

Many Americans are unaware of the basic facts about the Zika virus, which is spreading rapidly through the Americas and could reach the continental U.S. this summer.

While 87% of people know that Zika is spread by mosquitoes, nearly one in three people mistakenly believe that it also can be spread by coughing or sneezing, like a cold, according to a survey of 1,275 adults from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the National Public Health Information Coalition, a group that serves public relations officers.

"These misperceptions about Zika virus transmission could lead people to take unnecessary or inappropriate precautions, as we have seen in other kinds of outbreaks," said Gillian SteelFisher, director of the poll and a research scientist in the department of health policy and management at the Harvard Chan School.

Doctors agree that pregnant women and their babies have the greatest risk from Zika, which is linked to an alarming increase in birth defects in Brazil. Yet even adults in homes where someone is pregnant or considering pregnancy knew relatively little about Zika.

Among people in households where someone is pregnant or considering getting pregnant, 23% didn't know about the link between Zika and microcephaly, a condition in which babies are born with abnormally small heads and, in most cases, incomplete brain development. Forty-two percent didn't know that Zika can be transmitted sexually; 20% mistakenly believe there is a vaccine to prevent Zika; and 25% mistakenly believe people infected with the virus are "very likely" to show symptoms.........................

And is why I try to keep abreast with the information and presenting it to our public.

Well at least I post enough to get the people interested in this topic a head start.
As I don't get all that is presented to the public by those in the know and working directly with those whom do the work & research.

Great data at the search site also. It appears that our Health People need plenty more $ beside the 775 million Obama has pledged to fight this worsening Zika Virus, situation.

Zika virus 'scarier' than first thought, thousands of Puerto Rico cases possible, officials say

By North America correspondent Michael Vincent, wires

Updated about 11 hours ago..

The Zika virus is "scarier" than first thought and the mosquito that spreads it is now present in about 30 US states, top American health officials say.
Key points:


Billions in funds to fight Zika stalled in Congress
Virus linked to broad complications with pregnancy
Vaccine trials on track for September


The virus is linked to a broader set of complications with pregnancy, not just shrunken head or microcephaly, but also prematurity, blindness and other conditions, the US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said.

Media player: "Space" to play, "M" to mute, "left" and "right" to seek.
Video: How likely are North Queensland mosquitoes to transmit Zika virus? (ABC News)


There was deep concern about Puerto Rico where they may be hundreds of thousands of cases, principal deputy director of the CDC Dr Anne Schuchat said.

She said there was hope there would not be broad transmission across the US mainland, but that authorities needed to be prepared.

"Everything we look at with this virus seems to be a bit scarier than we initially thought," Dr Schuchat said.

"And so while we absolutely hope we don't see widespread local transmission in the continental US, we need the states to be ready for that.

"We can't assume we're not going to have a big problem."

A request by President Barack Obama for nearly $US2 billion ($2.6 billion) in assistance to fight the virus has stalled in Congress.

Zika, linked to numerous cases of the birth defect micocephaly in Brazil, is spreading rapidly in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The White House said last week in the absence of the emergency funds it will redirect $US589 million ($775 million), mostly from money already provided by Congress to tackle the Ebola virus, to prepare for Zika before it begins to emerge in the continental US as the weather warms.
Officials may be forced to redirect other research funds...
