The Doctors: Zika Virus Outbreak Update
The Doctors kicked off their Friday News Feed by discussing the Zika outbreak. Concerns are growing about the virus and it was just recently found that Zika has been associated to vision issues in babies from retina scarring, in addition to underdeveloped brains. If you have scarring of the retina, it can cause serious vision issues and even blindness. Congress is currently debating how much funding to put toward fighting the virus, but right now, there are no confirmed cases of a mosquito transmitting the virus to someone while in the United States.
