Zika Virus Continues to Spread

Zika Virus Continues to Spread

In the wake of the Zika virus outbreak, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is calling on California and 10 other states to begin testing their blood banks immediately. More than 30 California residents have tested positve for the virus, and two California women affected by Zika have delivered children with birth injuries. The babies were born with microcephaly, a condition wherein the children's heads are significantly smaller than is typical. The Zika virus has also been linked to other birth complications such as developmental delays. Symptoms of Zika infection include rashes, along with fever, joint pain, and red or itchy eyes.

These symptoms usually develop within 3-12 days after recieving a bite, and last from 4-7 days.
