CDC confirms link between Zika, microcephaly in Brazilian babies who died

WASHINGTON — The Centers for Disease Control has identified the Zika virus in the tissue of two babies who died in Brazil from microcephaly — the strongest link yet between the virus and the birth defect that has stricken developing fetuses, the CDC director told a House panel Wednesday.

Experts Study Zika’s Path From First Outbreak in Pacific


HONG KONG — Yap Island, the biggest in a group of tiny islands in the Western Pacific best known for using huge stone discs as currency, was facing a medical mystery.

In 2007, doctors were seeing an alarming increase in the number of patients with rashes, inflamed eyes and joint pain. Initial tests provided no answers to what was making them sick.

Zika confirmed in IN, OH, elsewhere, among travelers to affected areas

Indiana and Ohio health officials on Tuesday announced the first human cases of Zika in their states, but experts say the risk of contracting the virus locally remains low.

Ohio officials said the virus was reported in a 30-year-old Cleveland woman. Indiana officials wouldn't say where in the state the resident who contracted Zika lives, although they did say the person wasn't pregnant and never got sick enough to require hospitalization. Both people had recently traveled to Haiti, one of 30 countries and territories with active Zika virus transmission, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hawaii's Big Island Declares Emergency Over Dengue

The mayor of Hawaii's Big Island has declared a state of emergency to deal with an outbreak of dengue fever, spread by infected mosquitoes, with 250 cases confirmed over the past four months.

As a result of Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi's order people on the Big Island will be allowed to resume disposing of old tires in landfills, since tires left lying around are a known breeding spot for mosquitoes.

Carnival roars ahead in Brazil despite Zika health scare

The worst health scare in recent history is not keeping Brazilians from their annual Carnival revelry, with millions of partiers swarming streets and some making fun of the mosquito that spreads Zika and other viruses.

Street processions, block parties and the televised, big-budget parades that are the hallmark of the festival moved into their second day on Sunday, even as Brazilian health officials continued to grapple with an outbreak that may have infected as many as 1.5 million people and could be linked to suspected deformations in more than 4,000 infants and unborn children.

Colombia says three people have died after contracting the Zika virus and developing a rare nerve disorder.

Health Minister Alejandro Gaviria said there was a "causal connection" between Zika, the Guillain-Barre disorder and the three deaths.

Earlier, Brazilian scientists said they had detected for the first time active samples of Zika in urine and saliva.

Brazil finds active Zika virus in urine, saliva

Paulo Gadelha said at a press conference on Friday that the virus' ability to infect other people through the two body fluids requires further study.

However, he noted that the discovery calls for special precaution to be taken with pregnant women. Brazilian researchers have pointed to a suspected link between pregnant women's infection with the virus and a rare birth defect in babies.
