Status Feared As Ebola |Pregnancy Zika Facts Part 2
Welcome back to my midwives hut for part two of my six part Pregnancy Zika Facts educational program. In episode one I delivered water, birth, and mosquito and why the male mosquito sucks. In this episode I am going to share why the Zika virus is now as feared as the Ebola virus.
February 1st, 2016, the World Health Organization declared the Zika virus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. A week later the CDC (the Center for Disease Control) here in the America elevated its response efforts to the Zika virus as a Level 1 Activation. This means things are extremely serious, and the CDC has staff working 24/7 round the clock to deal with the situation. So far, the CDC has only assigned a Level 1 Activation on 3 other occasions. The first occasion to the Ebola outbreak in 2014, the second occasion was to the H1N1 flu outbreak in 2009, and the third occasion was to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Now you might be asking yourself why a Level 1 activation to Hurricane Katrina. The fact is after a hurricane of such magnitude there is a dramatic increase in the number of disease carrying mosquito.
The Zika virus was given a Level 1 Activation by the CDC as a result of information received from Brazil stating the Zika virus is the “first known mosquito-borne infection to cause congenital anomalies in humans”. Thousands of women in Brazil have delivered babies with small heads called microcephaly, a brain condition that can lead to developmental issues or even death. This I will deliver in more details in episode three.
