Are You Concerned About The Zika Virus?
There is growing concern about the Zika Virus. Are you concerned about this virus?
The only people that need to be concerned with the Zika virus are pregnant women and women of child bearing years who may become pregnant.
Precautions to take include avoiding mosquito bites - use DEET or other mosquito repellents approved by the EPA.
Don't allow trash to accumulate standing water (paint buckets, old tires, ponds, etc.) This is where mosquitoes breed.
The Zika virus presents flu-like symptoms such as muscle aches, fever, and joint pains. If you are pregnant and develop these symptoms, have your doctor test for Zika.
Another day, another virus.. and more fear conditioning by the media. No, I'm not concerned, and I don't think we should be!
I don't trust the medical authorities when they say that only pregnant women should be concerned because the infection is minor. What if it mutates into something worse because of their complacency? I live near a river, and we can't enjoy our yard without fighting mosquitoes, including the Asian tiger. Both my son and I have compromised immune systems from genetic autoimmune problems. So yes, I'm concerned about the Zika virus.
