Research raises hope for a Zika virus cure

The Zika virus is spread primarily by the Aedes mosquito. Found predominantly in Asia and Africa, the Aedes mosquito has spread to other parts of the world where there are warm temperatures and prevalent bodies of water.

The Zika virus poses a great threat to pregnant women, due to its ability to spread to the fetus. There is no known cure and no vaccine to protect against the Zika virus.

The threat of Zika virus has qualified it as a growing epidemic threat, and the World Health Organization (WHO) now considers it an international health emergency, according to www.directrelief.org.
