Mosquito Season Raises Zika Virus Concerns
As concern over Zika virus continues to grow, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) is urging the public to take precautions.
Zika virus causes mild u-like symptoms in about 20 percent of infected people, but the main concern among leading health organizations centers on a possible link between the virus and microcephaly, a birth defect associated with underdevelopment of the head and brain. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently declared Zika virus a global health emergency.
“Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent Zika virus or medication to directly treat it, so those who experience symptoms should get plenty of rest, stay well hydrated and take acetaminophen for pain,” noted Dr. Jorge Parada, medical advisor for NPMA and infectious disease specialist. “The best way to avoid contracting Zika virus and other mosquito-borne diseases is to take preventive measures when spending time outdoors.”
