Zika Information Available Online

The Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency’s Community Health Branch has released a Health Alert to Yolo County medical providers regarding the Zika virus, and has provided the alert and other related information on www.yolohealth.org.

National news stories have highlighted a surge in the number of newborns in South America born with a serious and uncommon birth defect called microcephaly (abnormal smallness of the head, a congenital condition associated with incomplete brain development).  The birth defect, as well as miscarriages, are believed to occur in mothers infected with the Zika virus, a germ spread to people through mosquito bites.
