27/11/2016





Malaysian health authorities have reported the first case of Zika virus within the country’s borders. The victim, who is a 58-year-old female, contracted the disease while visiting Singapore, a country in which 115 people are infected.Malaysia Health Minister, Subramaniam Sathasivam, stated in a news conference that the victim had shown signs of rash and fever one week after coming back from Singapore late August. Sathavisam also said that they are carrying out control measures against mosquitos around the victim’s house in orderto prevent the virus from spreading further. The first ones to get infected by the Zika virus was the monkeys in Uganda’s Zika forests in 1947. The disease didn’t emerge elsewhere for a substantial amount of time untilit startedspreading through the Americas and the Caribbean last yearmainly via mosquitos,blood transfusions and sexual intercourse. There is no treatment or vaccine for Zika, and the disease causes mild fever, rash, and red eyes.It is generally a mild disease but is a particular risk to pregnant women since it has been linked to microcephaly - a severe birth defect in which babies are born with neurodevelopmental disorders.Ata Mert ALADAĞ
