Million Child-Bearing Women in Latin America Could Get Zika

He cautions LGBTQ women to also practice safe sex, if their partner is planning to get pregnant.

"All pregnant women in the United States and US territories should be assessed for possible Zika virus exposure at each prenatal care visit", reads a new memo the CDC released on Monday.

According to a report in Medscape by Laurie Barclay, "The CDC update reflects emerging data indicating that Zika virus RNA can be detected in blood and urine for prolonged periods (longer than the previously recommended 7-day window for testing after symptoms begin) in some pregnant women, and even in asymptomatic pregnant women".

As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to investigate the South Florida cases, state authorities said Tuesday that Florida has the capacity to test about 4,770 for the Zika virus and about 2,130 for the antibodies.

United's then-CEO, Jeff Smisek, and two other executives left the airline a year ago after United conducted its own investigation. The "Chairman's Flight" came to light in the federal investigation of the George Washington Bridge closures known as BridgeGate.

"CDC recommends that all pregnant women with sex partners (male or female), who live in or traveled to an area with Zika, use condoms during sex or abstain from sex for the remainder of their pregnancy", the agency said.

These countries were named as the Dominican Republic (four cases), Colombia, Martinique (three cases each), Brazil, Bolivia (two cases each), Ecuador, Costa Rica, the Virgin Islands and Guadaloupe (one case each). World Health Organization estimates 3 million to 4 million people across the Americas will be infected with the virus in the next year. Late last week, Florida health officials said they were investigating a second possible case of locally transmitted Zika infection. Two of which, were in Miami-Dade, one in Okaloosa, one in Orange and one involving a pregnant woman.

The mosquito-borne Zika virus has been linked to hundreds of cases of microcephaly. Infections have also been reported in other Latin American and Caribbean nations.

Typically, the Zika virus doesn't cause serious illness. It used to be that a pregnant patient or her sexual partner had to travel to an area in the current Zika danger zones and develop symptoms before the CDC would unequivocally recommend testing.
