What is the Zika Virus

December 20, 2019

Zika virus there’s a flavivirus it’s
an infection that’s carried by mosquitoes and it causes an illness
that’s usually very mild it can even be asymptomatic one of the reasons that the
virus is up so much concern lately is not from the infection itself but the
late consequences particularly in pregnant women so this is what has
caused the largest degree of concern congenital abnormalities that have been
linked to infection of pregnant women with this virus and that was later
effects on the fetus in terms of a vaccine we don’t have a vaccine for this
disease either but there are several candidate vaccines that are in research
stages right now and we’re hopeful that perhaps within a year or so we’ll have
some clinical trials on going with vaccines to prevent this disease so
Johns Hopkins Medicine we are well positioned to address many aspects of an
infectious disease threat like this up I rest for instance at the Bloomberg
School of Public Health we have many researchers who are doing vaccine
development research on similar diseases like dengue and these efforts could be
repurposed to develop vaccines for zika virus infection prevent the
infection from a patient care perspective we also have infrastructure
in place to screen our patients for recent travel so I think when facing any
infectious disease threat like this virus it’s important to remain calm and
to arm ourselves with the facts and the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention is an excellent resource to get information and to stay abreast of
the current advisories and recommendations to protect ourselves

    The zika was created by th world health organization along with Bill Gates to reduce human population. They created GMO mosquitos that spread that so called zika. All these children with zika are not expected to love long lives, thus reducing population . Brazil was the testing site. They will now release GMO mosquitos in the US as well and maybe world wide.

    Zika causes nothing. Dtap in Brazil (ONLY) caused the birth defects. Be honest. I am so sick of Merck crap. Anyone can read my timeline. Vaccines CAUSED the birth defects.
