because of the warming weather coming to the EU area as Summer arrives... And the world sporting event happening in Brazil in a few weeks as hundreds of thousands of people come and go to watch these games.

WARNING: Zika Virus May Hit Europe Soon, Says WHO

May 18, 2016, The Brief



Zika virus could spread to Europe this summer while the likelihood of an outbreak rated low to moderate, World Health Organization, WHO, has warned.

The Zika virus is likely to affect most areas where Aedes mosquitoes may spread the virus, like the Black Sea coast of Russia and Georgia and the island of Madeira.

Countries considered to likely witness a moderate risk include France, Spain, Italy and Greece while the risk in the UK is low.

The UN agency is not issuing any new travel advice at this time.

Meanwhile, the WHO is calling on countries to eliminate mosquito breeding sites and to make sure that people – particularly pregnant women – have information on the potential harmful consequences of the disease.
The agency says most countries that could be affected are well prepared to pick up any new cases and deal with them quickly – but others must bolster their ability to diagnose the virus.

Zika has been linked to a rise in brain defects in babies and the virus has been seen in more than 50 countries during this outbreak.

According to WHO experts, the risk of spread increases in late spring and summer as Aedes mosquitoes – thought to carry the virus – become more active.

The report suggests 18 countries are at moderate likelihood of seeing Zika cases while the UK is one of 36 countries which have a low, very low or no likelihood of transmission.

Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, at the WHO, said: “We call particularly on countries at higher risk to strengthen their national capacities and prioritise the activities that will prevent a large Zika outbreak.”

The report weighed up many different factors to calculate the likelihood of spread, including the presence of Aedes mosquitoes, the climate and whether countries had the capacity to deal with Zika and stop transmission...............

I heard on today's local news that the first child born in America with the Zika Virus, well sadly it has begun and will happened again in the future...

I have said my prayers for these families and what they will face in the times to come. I am sure they can use more in the way of prays and good will..

Yet when I check for the news on this report I come up with two children born with it.

Well one has to wonder if some people have let the fear of the Zika Virus overpower their decision making process. Or can they be in their right mind as this situation is yet completely in the public domain and understood.

And some high-profile athletes have decided not to venture to Rio de Janeiro for the games.

As well as some of the staff of the many media out-lets that are preparing to arrive on time.

of if this would work over time...

What talk I am listening to is that it is in Florida already as the winter (starting in South America soon) is not harsh cold.

So the biters will increase their population then come early spring stat moving north again as well as all other directions.

And I hear that about any form of sex act can transmit the Virus if only one partner has it.

So this will spread around the world in a much shorter time frame. How it affect non child carrying adults and others is the real question I have failed to get answers to so far...

Zika Virus Disease in Colombia — Preliminary Report


Colombia began official surveillance for Zika virus disease (ZVD) in August 2015. In October 2015, an outbreak of ZVD was declared after laboratory-confirmed disease was identified in nine patients.....

By April 2, 2016, there were 65,726 cases of ZVD reported in Colombia, of which 2485 (4%) were confirmed by means of reverse-transcriptase–polymerase-chain-reaction (RT-PCR) assay. The overall reported incidence of ZVD among female patients was twice that in male patients. A total of 11,944 pregnant women with ZVD were reported in Colombia, with 1484 (12%) of these cases confirmed on RT-PCR assay. In a subgroup of 1850 pregnant women, more than 90% of women who were reportedly infected during the third trimester had given birth, and no infants with apparent abnormalities, including microcephaly, have been identified. A majority of the women who contracted ZVD in the first or second trimester were still pregnant at the time of this report. Among the cases of microcephaly investigated from January 2016 through April 2016, four patients had laboratory evidence of congenital ZVD; all were born to asymptomatic mothers who were not included in the ZVD surveillance system.

Conclusions
Preliminary surveillance data in Colombia suggest that maternal infection with the Zika virus during the third trimester of pregnancy is not linked to structural abnormalities in the fetus. However, the monitoring of the effect of ZVD on pregnant women in Colombia is ongoing. (Funded by Colombian Instituto Nacional de Salud and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.)

My mr. wonder, for keeping abreast with this topic...

I like to provide subject matter on events that effect people over time. Also the news that is on people lips, but might change before the day is out. Which I leave to the many others to get deeper involved, while I might lend an opinion on.
So to me the topics that can change or at least effect many people over time are of important.
