No Zika Travel Warning

The World Health Organization says it will not be issuing any travel restrictions related to the Zika virus. “WHO is not recommending travel restrictions related to Zika virus disease,” the United Nations public health agency said in a statement on Wednesday. “Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant must determine the level of risk they wish to take with regard to Zika and plan accordingly.” The Zika virus, which is spreading through the Caribbean and Latin America, is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which is also known to carry the dengue, yellow fever and Chikungunya viruses. The organization advises expecting mothers who wish to travel to a country with a high Zika risk to stay informed about Zika and other mosquito-transmitted diseases; protect themselves from mosquito bites; consult their doctor or local health authority about travelling in an area where Zika is present; mention their travel plans during their prenatal check-ups; and consult their health care provider for close monitoring of their pregnancy upon returning from travel. The main concern for pregnant women is the link of Zika to microcephaly, a rare neurological condition in which a baby is born with a very small head.
