Zika Virus (ZIKV) is the latest virus to cross the Atlantic and infect large populations in Central and South America, especially Brazil. Over 4000 cases of Microcephaly, a birth defect, have already been reported. The World Health Organization believes up to 4 million cases and 100,000 could become affected before it’s all over (it’s been wrong before, though, as we learned during the Ebola epidemic). In any case, you’ll see a lot about it on the news, so it’s important to know about it. Learn all about Zika virus, with Joe Alton, M.D. in his latest video.
