It's here!! And to be honest, it's a little scary.
The first proven case of the virus was reported yesterday in Texas. Local health officials are claiming that it was transmitted through sex- and not mosquitos- as all previous cases were transmitted.
The virus has caused severe birth defects in thousands of children in Brazil. The WHO is worried that it will soon spread to Africa and Asia too. A normal, healthy person will be over the virus in about a week with treatment, and may never even show signs. It is especially dangerous to pregnant women and their babies.
The CDC has confirmed that this is the first case of Zika in the United States to be reported in someone who has not recently traveled abroad.
