As I was watching the news, I found out that there is a new virus outbreak in the areas of Africa, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. I'm living in the Philippines and I am quite concerned by the outbreak because it may not affect our country yet but there is a chance it would be affected in the future.

Zika Virus is spread through mosquito bites. Its symptoms are:

>joint pain
>rash
>fever
>red eyes

Be cautioned on travelling to Brazil since it's confirmed that it started there.

Stay safe everyone and be healthy! ┗(^∀^)┛

***Have any thoughts and experiences with the Zika Virus? Please share it. Thank you.

PLEASE READ!

*From Yahoo News:

Guillain-Barre attacks skeletal muscular nerves as if they were a foreign enemy. Fine motor skills rapidly erode, arms and legs tingle and weaken to numbness. Patients lose their balance, their speech. In rare cases, they require ventilators to stay alive.

The syndrome typically strikes after a bacterial or viral infection, such as influenza, HIV or dengue, though its cause can’t always be determined.

Like Zika, both viruses are transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito and could also trigger Guillian-Barre, experts say.

Stay safe everyone! I hope this helps in learning about the Zika Virus.
