  • so its completely obvious that it will be undiagnosed and the numbers being given are likely much, much higher than is being reported.

    I mean come on 1000 people infected but apparently not one local transmission in the USA? Get real people, any day the numbers are going to spike and then questions will start being asked about diagnosis and reporting

  • "The president calls the situation in Puerto Rico a crisis and it is," Frieden told NBC News.

    "But it's an invisible crisis. In Puerto Rico, people are used to seeing dengue, which can kill you, or chikungunya, which can give you terrible joint pain for months."

    But Zika doesn't cause symptoms in many if not most people who get infected and even when it does they are mild — a fever, a rash, an eye infection. "I have heard over and over again 'I don't know anyone with Zika'," Frieden complained.

    "Well, they don't know anyone who knows they had Zika because four out of five people don't have symptoms."

  • SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah – A Salt Lake County resident has died after getting the Zika virus, according to the Salt Lake County Health Department.

    Officials said the elderly resident had an underlying health condition and had traveled to parts of the world where mosquitoes are known to carry the virus.

    This is the first confirmed Zika-related death in the continental United States.

  • The US has not recorded any cases of transmission by mosquito in the 50 states, though the insects are spreading the virus in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and American Samoa. People on the mainland have instead become infected while traveling abroad, through sexual transmission and in one case in a laboratory.

    Even without mosquitoes, the virus has steadily drifted north through the spring and summer. All but five states – Alaska, Idaho, Wyoming and North and South Dakota – has reported an infection. It has also started to appear in northern cities: Cincinnati reported its first case this week, New York City health officials reported 233 cases, mostly in people who had travelled to the Dominican Republic, and Washington state reached double digits.

  • According to pbs.org, the 10 new cases were considered the largest one-day total which was announced in the United States since the disease started to spread through Latin America last year. There have already been about 1,000 people infected with the virus who are currently living on U.S. soil, and 246 of those cases have been discovered in Florida this year.

  • Florida health officials on Wednesday confirmed 11 new Zika infections in six counties, including Lake County, which reported its first case this year. In total, 263 people in Florida have contracted the Zika virus since January, though only 28 are still exhibiting symptoms, according to the health department.

  • I cannot believe what an incompetent job is being done to monitor, report and respond to Zika. Just do some Google research its clear they don't really know the numbers, the diagnosis and reporting methodology is all over the place

  • At least seven pregnant women in Canada have been infected with the Zika virus that can cause devastating defects in a fetus’s developing brain — but the true number may be higher because federal health officials can’t say how many cases of Zika in Canada involve pregnant women.

    According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, Zika reports don’t always include information about “pregnancy status.” Of the 137 confirmed cases of Zika reported across the country as of June 30, at least 79 are women.

  • SAVANNAH, Ga. — Mosquitoes that can carry the Zika virus are found in all corners of Georgia — from coastal marshes to northern mountains, in rural farm communities and crowded suburbs. Yet many of those places employ no one to fight them.

    That could be a problem if Zika breaks out where taxpayer-funded mosquito control doesn't exist. Agencies dedicated to surveillance and spraying of mosquitoes aren't nearly as widespread in Georgia as the bugs themselves.

    An Associated Press survey of district offices of the Georgia Department of Public Health confirmed at least 56 counties statewide provide no mosquito control services. That's more than one-third of Georgia's 159 counties.

  • Federal health officials dispensed $25 million Friday to help states worst at risk from the Zika virus defend against its spread, but said they were taking cash from other programs to do it because they cannot get fresh funding from Congress.

    New funding for Zika remained deadlocked in Congress as the long July 4 weekend starts, although President Barack Obama made another demand for the money he's been asking for since February.

    "The problem is right now that money is stuck in Congress," Obama said Friday. "And we have not seen the House and the Senate come together in a sensible way to put forward the dollars that we have requested that have been budgeted to get the job done."

  • An outbreak of the Zika virus in the continental United States could begin any day now. But while there is plenty of discussion about mosquito bites, some researchers are beginning to worry more about the other known transmission route: sex.

    Intimate contact may account for more Zika infections than previously suspected, these experts say.

  • Florida health officials confirmed 10 new Zika infections on Friday, the largest number of infections found on a single day and a sign of the United States’ faltering response to a looming crisis.

    There are now nearly 1,000 people infected with the virus in Washington DC and the 50 states, 246 of them in Florida, and 2,026 infections in American territories, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Those totals include 537 pregnant women, 43 of whom live in Florida. The state has also seen its first case of an infant born with microcephaly, the fifth case of the birth defect related to the virus in the US.

  • The governor of the commonwealth, Alejandro García-Padilla, wrote in an op-ed for CNBC Wednesday that the territory will not make some $1 billion in bond payments on Friday as it struggles with the long-term implications of it’s massive deficits.

    “On July 1, 2016, Puerto Rico will default on more than $1 billion in general obligation bonds, the island’s senior credits protected by a constitutional lien on revenues,” he said in the post.

    García-Padilla also emphasised the need for a long-term restructuring of the territory’s more than $70 billion in debt, saying Puerto Rico’s obligations “must be restructured fairly and equitably” for both the creditors and citizens.

    In addition, the US Senate passed a bill Wednesday, just hours after García-Padilla’s op-ed, that will allow Puerto Rico some of the same bankruptcy protections afforded to states, which had previously not been allowed under US law.

    Under the new bill, which is expected to be signed quickly by President Obama, the territory will have to cut some of its public services and establish an outside board to guide the restructuring.

  • In the thick of mosquito season, Congress is about to start its holiday break with no deal on money to combat the Zika virus -- and no signs that a compromise is looming in the five-month debate.

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday shot down a House-passed bill that would have provided $1.1 billion to fight the mosquito-borne virus, citing opposition to the measure's changes in pesticide regulations and restrictions on money for birth control.

    “Our friends on the other side are stopping the Zika funding bill, which we all agreed … needed to be done by July 1,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. “It's inexplicable and unacceptable to not be able on a bipartisan basis to address this important public health care crisis.”

  • BROOKLYN - Public health officials have confirmed at least 233 cases of the Zika virus in New York City.

    Health officials expect that number to rise in the coming months as more people travel to and from the Carribean and Latin America.

    The Department of Health commissioner says more than half the cases of Zika are from people who recently arrived in New York City from the Dominican Republic.

  • Zika virus causes different types of brain damage in babies, not just microcephaly, according to two new reports.

    Brazilian researchers found as many as one in five babies born with brain damage caused by Zika had normal-sized heads. That means babies who may seem normal may in fact suffer from serious conditions that parents and doctors may not notice until they get older.

    The findings show that if a pregnant woman is infected with Zika — even if a baby is born with a normal-sized head — the child could have severe brain damage.

  • Zika can be challenging to diagnose in humans. Different tests have to be performed at different times. In the first week of infection, doctors use a test called PCR to look for the virus in the blood. But after that, they rely on tests that look for the immune system’s reaction to the virus, not the virus itself.

    “And you’re relying on people to go to the doctor in the first place,” Hotez said.

    Since the symptoms of Zika are usually mild, some may choose not to visit a clinic. If they do, “the system for health care providers to do Zika testing is cumbersome,” he said. “Imagine you have a busy practice where there’s pressure to do a high turnover. You’re not going to be able to test everyone with rash and fever for Zika.”

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • WASHINGTON D.C. -- House and Senate Republicans have reached agreement among themselves on a $1.1 billion measure to combat the Zika virus, but the measure drew immediate opposition from Democrats who signaled they would scuttle it over its spending cuts and "poison pills."

    The measure -- and the looming partisan battle over it -- comes as a deadline to pass the Zika funding into law is beginning to run out.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will not confirm any diagnosis publicly until after the babies are born. The federal health agency confirmed in April that the Zika virus can cause a birth defect called microcephaly -- an underdeveloped brain at birth. It's the first time in history a virus transmitted by mosquito bite has been found to cause birth defects.

    "What we're learning is that they have a severe form of microcephaly that is oftentimes associated with other problems in the brain that can be seen on imaging or CT scan or MRI's, that makes us really concerned," said the CDC's Dr. Sonja Rasmussen at the time.

    A ATM offering isn't a bad thing when the company is simply raising funds to bring a slew of products to market. In fact its the opposite, its extremely positive. Any muppets who want to believe the every offering is dilution hypothesis doesn't know what they are talking about.
