Brazil has been facing a public health crises since 2015, when the Zika virus caused thousands of babies in Northeastern Brazil to be born with microcephaly. The World Health Organization called Zika a Public Health Emergency in 2016. Recently, the concern for the virus has disappeared, but it remains a threat. The next outbreak can occur at any time and there is no vaccine or medicine for Zika at the present time.
The Zika virus is spread mostly by the bite of infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus. Brazilian obstretician and researcher, Adriana Melo, was the first to make the connection between the Zika virus and microcephaly, a condition which causes infants to have misshaped heads and profound neurological abnormalities. Children can have a range of developmental delays and specialists predict some children will need intensive services throughout their lives.
