Zika: What It Is & Why It’s A Threat
The Zika virus has spread from Africa and Asia to the Western Hemisphere. For approximately two years, the virus has been spreading from Brazil and is quickly branching out in all directions, particularly toward parts of the United States.
The Zika virus presents much like a cold or flu with symptoms that last a little over a week, but it has been declared an international public health emergency by the World Health Organization because of its various links to birth defects (including brain damage.)
What Does This Mean For The United States?
The U.S. is vulnerable to this virus on two fronts:
- Residents who travel to virus-saturated areas are contracting the infection and bringing it back into the United States.
- The Aedes aegypti mosquito is the primary carrier of the Zika virus and is already prevalent in the southern United States.
Regardless, with our help at Tuxedo Mosquito Control, this virus can be controlled!
