BBC News: Zika Outbreak: What You Need to Know

By James Gallagher, Health editor,

BBC News website

31 May 2016

From the section Health

http://www.bbc.com/news/health-35370848

.

The World Health Organization has declared the Zika virus a global public health emergency.

.

The infection is suspected of leading to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains.
Some areas have declared a state of emergency, doctors have described it as “a pandemic in progress” and some are even advising women in affected countries to delay getting pregnant.

.

But there is much we do not know in this emerging infection.

.

What are the symptoms?

Deaths are rare and only one-in-five people infected is thought to develop symptoms.

These include:

mild fever

conjunctivitis (red, sore eyes)

headache

joint pain

a rash

A rare nervous system disorder, Guillain-Barre syndrome, that can cause temporary paralysis has been linked to the infection.

.

There is no vaccine or drug treatment so patients are advised to rest and drink plenty of fluids.

.

But the biggest concern is the impact it could have on babies developing in the womb and the surge in microcephaly.
