What you need to know about the Zika virus

current affairs

The Zika virus, which has caused widespread birth defects, is spreading across the Americas.

The virus has killed thousands of people and displaced tens of millions of others.

It is also spreading to parts of the world that have few records of the disease.

The United States is at the center of this global epidemic.

But the virus, a global phenomenon, is also being brought to our shores by a single mosquito.

Here are five facts about Zika and the mosquito.


The Zika outbreak has killed more than 1.6 million people worldwide.

That’s more than any other single epidemic in history.

According to a WHO report, more than two-thirds of those killed in the virus were children, mostly infants, and nearly a quarter were pregnant women.

It’s also one of the deadliest outbreaks in human history, surpassing the worst pandemic ever.

A total of 790,000 people have been infected with the virus so far, according to the latest figures from the World Health Organization.

And the outbreak has spread at an astonishing pace, with the U.S. experiencing more than 2.5 million cases and Mexico about 600,000.

Zika has been linked to birth defects in pregnant women, a rise in cases in adults and a rise among the elderly, including those with weakened immune systems.

There have been two deaths from the virus in the U, one in Colorado, and the other in Florida.


It has been a relatively quiet summer for mosquitoes in the United States.

The country has seen only about 40 confirmed cases of the virus.

The first case of Zika was reported on August 4 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, but there were no confirmed cases in other states.

As of Tuesday, there were only 10 confirmed cases and only three deaths, according the CDC.

But according to a report by the World Bank, the U is not far behind the United Kingdom in terms of mosquito populations.

There are about 1.2 million mosquitoes in Texas, according an Associated Press tally, but the U has about 2.4 million.

There were more than 30 million mosquitoes across the U S. as of June 30, according data from the U of M. That means that while there are fewer mosquitoes in Florida than in Colorado in terms the amount of mosquitoes in Puerto Rico is higher.

The U.K. has a much smaller mosquito population, with about 400 million, but it is also a much more humid place, which means that there are more mosquitoes.


The mosquito has been found in more than half of all the states.

According a study published in Science, a total of 8,819 states, including all 50 states, have confirmed cases or suspected cases of Zika.

There is no national estimate of the number of cases in each state, but a total is expected to be in the millions.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in February that there were more people infected with Zika in the past few days than in the entire week of July.

The number of Zika cases in the states is rising, but that’s not surprising, since the virus has spread rapidly across the globe.


The mosquitoes that carry the virus have been found to be able to transmit the virus to people in other parts of their bodies.

The CDC estimates that the number that have been identified to carry Zika in humans to other parts is 1.5 to 2 million, according a study by the International Center for Disease Prevention and Control.

In other words, the Zika viruses have spread across multiple bodies.

A recent study in Science looked at cases in Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Peru, Venezuela and Uruguay, and found that some of the mosquitoes carrying Zika were also transmitting it to other people in those countries.

These include pregnant women who are traveling to the U., pregnant women and their partners, and others who are at risk for contracting the virus during the pregnancy.


The World Health Organisation is warning that the Zika outbreak is likely to last until 2020, and that there is a “substantial” chance of it being the deadliest epidemic in human experience.

That is because Zika can be passed on by mosquitoes that live in the intestines of infected humans, and there is evidence that this could be occurring in many parts of South America.

A study published last month in the Lancet found that mosquitoes that are infected with human-to-human transmission, or HTLV-1, can carry the Zika disease.

In this study, researchers in Brazil and Chile found that Zika-infected mosquitoes in one part of the country were able to transfer the virus between humans and other infected mosquitoes in another part of Brazil.

Researchers believe that this means that mosquitoes in other countries are also carrying the virus as they carry it. 6.

In many parts, mosquitoes can be killed in a matter of minutes.

A report published in the journal Science said that, in some areas, there are two ways to remove mosquitoes from the human population: by destroying them, or by killing them with pesticides.

The authors found that the first method was the most
