Rise of Zika Virus in Brazil

Posted by JacobT on

Zika virus has been around since the 1940’s but has had limited health impact on humans. That is, until now, where it is reaching epidemic proportions in Brazil. Since the middle of 2015, there have been some 1200 incidences of Zika virus where two adults and once baby have died.

Zika according to National Public Radio is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, a species that also transmits the dreaded dengue fever and chikungunya fever. Like most viral illnesses, there is no cure. There are only symptomatic treatments, which, as the name implies, treats the symptoms of the disease to help keep the patient comfortable as possible during recovery.

The Zika virus often causes few symptoms or they are subclinical, meaning they do not necessarily display a particularly worrisome set of symptoms. The symptoms may include fatigue, fever and rash. Often, it disappears untreated in 3-7 days, according to Dr. Sergio Cortes, who has been studying the disease in Brazil. An uninfected mosquito can even pick up the Zika virus from an infected person allowing it to transfer the virus with the next bite of a human.

The only way to definitively diagnosis Zika virus is through a series of complex blood tests for specific antibodies to the virus. This type of testing is not easily available in Brazil, is costly and time consuming. According to Dr. Sergio Cortes, the only real identifier of Zika is by symptoms and history of where patients have been.

Like other mosquito borne illnesses, the best way to avoid infection is to avoid places where mosquitoes breed. This would include standing water of any type such as natural ponds or lakes. People also need to be reminded to keep yards clear of debris that may pool rainwater such as birdbaths, pet dishes, tires and even bottle caps, as even small amounts of water can attract mosquitoes for breeding purposes.

Dr. Cortes is particularly concerned about the health risks of pregnant women and the Zika virus. The virus can cause babies to be born with microcephaly, a condition in which the baby’s head is abnormally small. Children born with this condition due to exposure to Zika virus in utero also can exhibit inconsolable fussiness, failure to thrive due to poor suckling and even early death.

The Ministry of Health in Brazil has warned women who are pregnant or planning to, along with Dr. Cortes, to avoid going outside at certain times of the day when mosquitoes are most active. They also suggest covering any exposed skin with clothing and using insect repellents.

Dr. Cortes is conducting research to find out more about how the virus infects humans and, particularly how it affects the fetus of pregnant women infected by the illness. More of this type of study is needed to develop a vaccination. Much of Dr. Cortes’ research and findings are available online. You can follow him on Twitter at
