last year it was Ebola this year it is the Zika Virus... and it is scary. in usa there are 591 reported infected cases. most from traveling over seas. 2 new babies with it.. Hawaii and New Jersey. all the reports make it sound so scary... but they don't tell you .. one thing I really wanted to know. is it like the cold virus.. once you have it .. it is in your body for life. even sites that lists important things to know about Zika don't tell you... had to do a quick search online finally found this site: http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/zika-virus-article-1.2630660 finally got what I wanted to really know. the virus only last about a week in your body.. and then it is gone! no lasting effects.... so once you are over the sickness.. no fear of pregnancy!!!
