Officials are warning pregnant women to be extra careful and avoid contact with Mosquitoes
Wilmington, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/06/2016 -- Florida officials are warning residents that pregnant women should be extra cautious this summer as Zika infections are increasing quickly in the state. Zika was first seen last year in Brazil when an epidemic swept the South American nation infecting hundreds of babies.
Zika is responsible for a birth defect in infants called microcephaly, which causes a shrunken head and leads to life-long mental and developmental problems and requires medical treatment for life. The disease is caused when a pregnant woman is bitten by a mosquito that is carrying the virus.
The Aedes aegypti mosquito found in Florida and the southern U.S. (and other parts of the world) is the main carrier of the Zika virus. To keep these mosquitoes in check, the Department of Health in Florida is advising residents to remove standing water from bird baths, garbage cans and pool covers—any standing water needs to be drained.
Florida was the first state to see mosquito borne Zika infections. Total Zika infections in the United States from mosquito bites amounts to 29 as of August 29th while the total number of travel associated cases in the U.S. are 2,487. These numbers are according to the CDC (Center for Disease Control.
