What is the Zika Virus?
You may have heard people talking about the Zika virus on the news recently. Maybe you haven't. But I noticed that when one concerned Vingler asked about it, worried about the disease rampaging through her country, no one seemed to know what she was talking about. Sorry, folks, but you're going to be hearing all about it. Way more than you'll ever want to, in fact. :( Zika Virus is a mosquito born virus that is currently blanketing Central and South America. By the end of Summer 2016, it will be everywhere in the Americas except Canada and inland Chile. But what is it? Is it dangerous? Should you be scared? Check out this video for 10 facts about the Zika Virus. It's really well done. Then, we'll talk. That was pretty extensive, but we're going to hit a few points again for clarity's sake. Plus, there has been new information since they produced their video, which is probably a good thing. This is where the confirmed cases have been cited. Since this was made, the CDC has also confirmed thirty-one cases in the United States and seven cases in Spain. All are the results of people visiting Latin America, becoming infected, and then returning home. NONE are the result of mosquitoes being in the US or Europe at this time.
