Zika virus and aegyypti mosquito

Newborns infected with zika virus carried by aedes aegypti mosquitoes, develop microcephaly (less developed brains, small heads). Brazil has upto 1.3m cases. No cure yet..

US visas denied to aegypti mossies !

Sadly, no vaccine developed yet for this deadly virus !! Like chikungunya, attacking the carrier agent, aegypti mossy is the only cure ..

Asking Brazilian couples to delay child bearing by upto two years is the only intelligent remedy to combat the ill effects of this deadly virus.
