    Exclamation Zika virus....new kid on the block!

    Zika virus is mutating. Originally only found in monkeys, evolved to infect humans in 1947, transmitted by mosquitos that only occur in tropical and sub-tropical environments. Causes 'flu like symptoms, but if it infects a pregnant woman can cause very serious birth defects such as microencephaly or small head which is a serious life long disability.

    Now there is emerging evidence that "ordinary" mosquitos can transmit the virus which means it could spread nearly globally very quickly! There is also emerging evidence that it can be spread via sexual contact in semen.

    There is a current outbreak in South America, and women are advised to avoid pregnancy. There is no commercially available vaccine as of yet.

    If I was a punter who is with a partner who is pregnant or trying to get pregnant, I would avoid intimate contact with semen of anyone who has recently been in South America, and be a bit nervous of any bodily fluid exchange, such as saliva, until we get the full picture of how this virus is capable of transmission.

    Please note, it's only punters with contact with potentially pregnant ladies!!

    Only if:

    You are in intimate contact with a woman who is potentially pregnant,

    And

    If the person has RECENTLY been in South America

    The WHO are holding emergency meeting to discuss the "explosive" spread in South America.

    Hopefully fellow humanity will support those affected.

    No, only one in four people exposed to the virus show symptoms and the symptoms only last up to 10 days. However during the time you could transmit this virus either through mosquitoes or semen.

    As the incubation period is about a week, I would advise any punter whose wife or girlfriend is potentially pregnant to avoid semen or MAYBE saliva from anyone that's been in an pandemic area within the last 3 weeks

    Please note I'm not a medical professional!

    Fuckin mosquitoes, for a small wee bastard they cause a lot of disease & death in the world.
    But then again the black death or plague wasn't carried by rats but the fleas they carried on their bodies.
