Zika virus infection: woman returning to Texas from El Salvador confirmed positive – TomoNews



HOUSTON — A woman who returned to the Houston area in Texas after a trip to El Salvador in November has a confirmed case of the Zika virus, Reuters reported, citing officials in Harris County.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, there have been 22 cases of the disease among returning U.S. travelers since 2007. Zika is transmitted by the Aedes genus of mosquito, which can also carry the dengue and chikungunya viruses. Zika causes a mild disease with fever, rash and joint pain. It is rarely fatal and can be cured with bed rest and liquids.

An epidemic of the Zika virus in Brazil, however, has prompted health officials to investigate thousand of cases of microcephaly in the country. Since microcephaly is usually a rare condition, health officials have suggested a link between the virus and the disease that causes an abnormally small head size and incomplete brain development.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Brazilian authorities estimate that 500,000 to 1.5 million people have been infected by the Zika virus in the country. In December, Puerto Rico confirmed its first locally acquired case of Zika virus, suggesting that the virus might be circulating there.

U.S. officials say they are preparing for a growing number of Zika cases in the spring and summer, when the weather creates ideal breeding conditions for the mosquitoes that carry the virus.

Outbreaks of the virus have also occurred in the past in Africa, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands.

  1. A new, disgusting "Race-Weapon" made by white Fascists?

    FACT: – the pathetic Western/White World is NOT ABLE ,
    to get the Rabbit-like Animal-like breeding of the other Races into Check, they secretely refer to as "Subhumans" … … …
    Good Night white Pride. You are even trying to reduce Humanity to a bunch of Teratisms before giving up, eh? How pathetic.

  2. People are fucking ignorant. SMH. This virus is from a mosquito bite, meaning, if your white American ass visits any Latin American country, gets bitten? wtf do you want them to do? Stay? Idiots.

  3. THE ROCKEFELLARS BOUGHT THE PATENT FOR THE ZIKA VIRUS IN 1947. THEY ALSO OWN AND FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD WHICH IS GENOCIDING 480,000 HUMAN BEINGS A YEAR. WHAT CHUTZPA!!! LETS MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN…KILL A TALMUDIC ZIONIST JEW THIS YEAR BEFORE THEY SUCEED IN THEIR GOAL OF GENOCIDING YOU AND YOURS!!! FORCE THEM TO RETURN TO MOSAIC JUDAISM OR TO DIE.

  4. Allah is punishing the USA + The Americans ,, from tornados to snow blizzards & now this Zika virus + the Jews ,, ha ha I hope that Allah will never stops his punishments to the USA + The Americans ,, ha ha

  5. The virus becomes the formidable cover story that conceals the truth.    

    And don't forget the Rio Olympic Games, coming up in August.  There are
    multiple scenarios which could play out in front of a global television
    audience.  Will Zika be pushed as some sort of worldwide pandemic?  Will
    a Zika vaccine be magically "discovered" and rushed into production, in
    time to show (as an advertisement) lines of people dutifully trudging
    up to receive shots?

  6. STUPID PEOPLE OF AMERICA WHERE DID SHE COME FROM??  SOUTH AMERICA??:  GET A F N CLUE..    THEY ARE BRINGING IT TO AMERICA.  IF OUR MISQITOES BITE THEM THEN IT WILL INFECT AMERICA.  YOU IDIOTS…  GET IT GOT IT.   GET A FN CLUE…..

  7. Watch out spraying more insecticides – they're probably the roots of all Evil…
    Microcephaly occurs normaly in relation of 1,6:1000 which is 1 case : of 8500 births. Pls. decide between to different types of it:
    Primary M. is caused by autosomal recessive reasons, like inherited gene defects due to mutations on DNA cells and withcoming lack of natural neural proliferaton (of cells) during 2nd and 5th month of pregnancy.
    Second M. is caused by prenatal infections like Toxoplasmosis, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus or Chickenpox. Fetal Alcohol syndrome and Coaine abuse can cause cognitive diseases but not necessarily malformations of skulls… but so can do any kind of radiation, like immissions of cell towers in close proximities of residential areas and relevante dosis!

    Quick memo to all interested (human!) colleagues of medicine, science and true research:

    "Conceivable there might by some – membrane insane scientific commercials/ experts out there, creating a monster Zika mosquito, very concious, precisely and obiously very effective"?!!!

    Alcylphosphates belong to a toxid group of Parathiones in formerly known insecticides such as E 605…
    and its poision gases (f.e. also in Tabun Sarin and VX), can cause some of now occured diseases, combined with symptoms like Cholinergic Syndrome (muscle spasm, vegetative derailments as sweat and fever, bronchial hypersecretion- and spasm, bradycardia, hypotension, diarrhea and abdominal cramps, urinary urgencys etc.

    So what's about Microcephaly, with it's VERY BIG JUMP OVER THE OCEAN from Africa to Brazil and South America.

    Billy Boy Gates and Co. hasn't got new "GOALS and EMPLOYMENT" – does he?!!!

  8. ONLY A SMALL NUMBER OF BABIES WHO DIED HAD THE VIRUS IN THEIR BRAIN.
    A new TDAP shot Brazil made mandatory at the beginning of 2015, which coincides with perfect timing with a whole bunch of newborns being born with defects.

  9. I believe this virus was created in a lab by well educated humans I believe they are experimenting with humans in third world countries just like they created aids in africa they are capable of creating others viruses to infect minorities

  10. If this virus is spread by the mosquito then the best thing to do is stop destroying the habitat of mosquito predators i.e. bats and frogs, frogs eat the mosquito larvae that are laying in still water. Better still actively encourage the natural predators by getting people to install bat houses etc. The butterfly population in the Cayman Islands has been decimated because they spray the island, this is an ignorant one size fits all approach that has no sympathy with nature. Ge is greek for Earth , Gaia, is written in words with GE, i.e. endanGEred species, protect them and they will protect us!

  11. Does anyone know if the someone that once had the virus can get pregnant later on with no problems?
    I'm thiking of visiting Colombia, and have no plans of getting pregnant anytime soon, just wondering if I were to get it, will it stay in my system, and if so, will it affect the pregnancy, even though I had the virus years before? Can't seem to find anything about long-term effects on the internet.

  12. So sad. Diseases effect so many babies. People don't realize how dangerous it is to have children with so many sicknesses around. My 8 month old was born profoundly deaf, and some brain damage. Why? A common virus was transferred to my poor child. 80% of the population has the virus and it's only dangerous to pregnant woman. I had never even heard of it. It's name is Cmv cytomegalovirus. It shattered my heart when I got his diagnosis. So many things out there that we only find out about when it's too late. My heart goes out to all the babies and mothers effected by Zika.

  13. genetically altered mosquitos where released a few years ago. This disease and others are on their way here along with other diseases from illegals allowed to just run rampant into your country. All by design. Flesh eating bacteria and a possible pandemic are on the depopulation and forced integration agenda
