In the News - Zika Virus

There’s a CDC Public Health Grand Rounds for That!

The first case of Zika virus has been reported in the continental U.S. Zika is a virus that’s carried by Aedes mosquitoes. Though there is a lot we don’t know about this virus, we do know that there is a link between Zika and birth defects. To learn more about how we can prevent mosquito-borne diseases like Zika, watch our Grand Rounds session, “Dengue and Chikungunya in Our Backyard: Preventing Aedes Mosquito-Borne Disease.”
