Zika Virus is a worrying thing my dearies! But don’t you worry because,
I am here to tell you all about it. So that you stay safe and healthy. Come. What are you waiting for,huh? Zoom In! The Zika Virus disease was first
identified in 1947.. .. in Rhesus monkeys in Uganda. And then it was subsenquently
identified in humans as well. And now it has spread all over. In Africa, America, Asia and the Pacific. This Virus is transmitted to people through
the bite of an infected mosquito. This could be the same mosquito
that transmits.. ..dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever. The early symptoms of this
disease are fever.. rashes, conjunctivitus, muscle pain,
joint pain and headache.. ..which are usually mild and last
for 2-7days. Well, now comes the serious part. Do you know that the Zika Virus
also causes.. ..the much dreaded disease called
Microcephaly. Never heard of that before, right? Don’t you worry, I’ll tell you! Microcephaly is a condition where the baby’s
head is much smaller than expected.. ..which can later lead to complications. such as Dwarfism, seizures, delayed speech
and movements. If a mother is infected with the
Zika Virus during her pregnancy.. ..her baby is likely to be born
with Microcephaly. And that could be quite dangerous! But hey, you don’t worry because
all you need to do.. keep your surroundings
free of mosquitoes. Wear long sleeved shirts and long pants
to stay away from mosquito bites. As we all know that prevention
is better than cure. Trivia Time! Zika is mainly carried by a specific type of
mosquito called Aedes Aegypti There is no vaccine against the
Zika Virus yet. But don’t worry, scientists are
trying their best to find out one! So friends, squat the menacing
mosquitoes around. And stay safe. This is me, Zooming out! Tune in next time for more fun facts.
