Zika virus has avoided big news headlines…but it’s still here.
In fact, as summer travel season arrives, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wants you to know that Zika virus is still a concern in Latin America or the Caribbean. If a woman becomes infected with Zika during pregnancy, she can pass the virus to her fetus, which can cause birth defects.
