Almost 300 Women In U.S. Infected With Zika Virus

The CDC reports hundreds of women in the United States and its territories have shown signs of infection from the Zika virus. Second, the CDC changed its system for reporting cases and now includes women who were infected but didn't have symptoms. Fewer than six of the 279 women have reported problems with their pregnancy, but Dr. Margaret Honein, chief of the CDC's Birth Defects Branch, warned that the numbers will increase over time. Researchers believe pregnant women are at a greatest risk of having babies with birth defects if they are infected in the first trimester.[5]

Zika linked to birth defects in 6 U.S pregnancies

Commenting on the findings, experts today warned pregnant women: "You're not out of the woods if you don't have symptoms ". "Perhaps the answer is between those two somewhere", Dr. Honein said of the risk to pregnant women. As of June 9, 234 pregnant women were reported to have lab evidence of Zika infections. Birth defects risk in Zika virus depends on the timing of infection during pregnancy, according to a new study.[6]
