ZIKA VIRUS A THREAT TO PREGNANT MILITARY MEMBERS

ZIKA VIRUS A THREAT TO PREGNANT MILITARY MEMBERS

CNN confirms that 41 military members stationed overseas have contracted the Zika virus-double the number of cases reported just last month. Those diagnosed with Zika include a pregnant soldier and seven military dependents. In pregnant women, the effects can be devastating, and can include pregnancy loss or a baby born with an abnormally small head and brain—a condition known as microcephaly. Under Pentagon health policies, female service members are permitted to move out of countries where Zika exists and hopefully action will be taken to quickly move pregnant military members out of harm’s way.
