UPDATE UPDATE !

The Zika virus is likely to spread across nearly all of the Americas, the World Health Organization has warned.
The infection, which causes symptoms including mild fever, conjunctivitis and headache, has already been found in 21 countries in the Caribbean, North and South America.
It has been linked to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains and some countries have advised women not to get pregnant.
No treatment or vaccine is available.

Brazil says the number of babies born with suspected microcephaly or abnormally small heads since October has now reached nearly 4,000.
In the worst affected area, about 1% of newborns have suspected microcephaly.
The Brazilian authorities believe the increase is caused by an outbreak of Zika virus. Just 150 babies were born with microcephaly in 2014.
The brain condition can be deadly or cause intellectual disability and developmental delays.

Colombia's health minister has advised women there to delay pregnancy.
Brazil's health ministry says there have been 3,893 suspected cases of microcephaly since October, when the authorities first noticed a surge, up from 3,500 in last week's report.

The link with Zika has not been confirmed, but a small number of babies who died had the virus in their brain and no other explanation for the surge in microcephaly has been suggested.

Zika is generally mild and only causes symptoms in one in five people. It is spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which also spreads dengue and chikungunya.

UPDATE :

Officials in four Latin American and Caribbean nations have warned women to avoid pregnancy amid concerns over an illness causing severe birth defects.
Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador and Jamaica recommended to delay pregnancies until more was known about the mosquito-borne Zika virus.

This followed an outbreak in Brazil.

Brazil said the number of babies born with suspected microcephaly - or abnormally small heads - had reached nearly 4,000 since October.

Zika’s alarming spread: CDC investigates link to paralyzing condition, adds 8 countries to travel warning


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which reported this week that a dozen cases of Zika virus have been confirmed in the United States, is expanding its advisory that pregnant women should avoid travel to countries currently seeing high rates of infection.

The agency's initial list contained 14 countries, but the CDC on Friday added eight more -- in South America, the Caribbean and Polynesia -- as places where the reach of the virus is growing.

The CDC now is working with authorities in Brazil to study a potential link between the mosquito-borne virus and a rare syndrome known as Guillain-Barré that can lead to paralysis. In Brazil, which is currently the epicenter of Zika, public health officials were already investigating a link between the virus and a rare birth condition called microcephaly. That country has seen nearly 3,900 suspected cases since October, with the babies involved suffering serious brain damage.

In recent days, several countries have taken drastic measures to try to combat the virus. Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador and Jamaica are all calling on women to consider delaying becoming pregnant.

So far, the known U.S. cases are of people who were traveling and likely bitten by mosquitoes while abroad -- but infectious disease experts say the rapid spread of the tropical virus in the Americas may mean an outbreak here.

Holy shit....
 Quoting: Dr_Doom




There is only one problem with the theory of the spread of this tropical based disease and that is the fact that it is a disease spread via mosquitoes. And as everyone knows mosquitoes are killed off by cold fridge weather making it difficult to spread in the cold fridge northern latitudes. Unless of course you believe that the world is heating up due to man made global warming in which case tropical diseases such as this will spread farther up into the northern latitudes.

Zika virus: What you need to know about the latest global health scare.

Why is Zika dangerous?

There is no vaccine for the virus, which can cause fever, rashes, joint pains, and conjunctivitis within days of being contracted. For most of those infected, the virus causes a short illness lasting between two and seven days. However, in some rare cases, it can result in serious illness and death.

Infants are most at risk from Zika, as mothers can pass the infection on to their fetus, leading to microcephaly – a rare birth defect where babies are born with abnormally small heads and developmental delays.
Treatment for the Zika virus focuses on pain relief and fever reduction, with some patients also given antihistamines for itchy skin rashes.

Preventative measures focus on general mosquito bite prevention, such as using insecticides, and special nets and screens.

Where it came from



The Zika virus is mainly found in South America, Africa, the Pacific Islands, and Southeast Asia.

The virus was first discovered in Africa in 1947, circulating in humans, animals and mosquitoes with few documented outbreaks. In wasn’t until 2007 that an Asian strain of the virus caused the first outbreak outside of Africa, in Micronesia. The same strain caused an outbreak in French Polynesia in 2013, which has since spread to the Pacific Islands and South America.

Within nine months of the first case being confirmed in the northeast of Brazil in May 2015, most Brazilian states had reported locally-acquired cases.

Brazil has seen a surge in outbreaks of the fever since 2015. The country had seen an average of 150 babies a year born with microcephaly, but from October 2015 to January 2016 that number rocketed to over 3,500, according to the Brazilian Ministry of Health.

Many of us talked about weaponized mosquitos on 8ES soficrow had a great thread on this.

But it's a done deal now.

Sorry we allowed these shiturds to run our nation. They will use bugs against us, and our tax dollars pay for it.

Frankly, in my worst nightmare I see this Zika thing being designed for organ transplantation, they get a child which is essentially a body and little else, easier to sell the mother on donating the child to science, lock it away on a shelf like the matrix and keep it alive screaming.

You gota hit this piece of wood with one mighty blow to go to the heart of this shit, OP is right, a few more years of this and we're fucked.

How is a case of mild fever, conjunctivitis and headache major Earth doom? As far as the new born, well it's super rare to happen. I've also seen some pics. The heads aren't that little. This is so new, we don't even know how bad the long term health for the newborns are. For all we know, the kids might grow into that head.

Just another thing we're all goons die from, but the world still keeps going. Remember, we were all going to die from killer bees, Ebola, bird flu, mad cow, Hantavirus, swine flu, random anthrax attacks, on and on and on.
