Zika: six new pregnant women infected


A decline in clinically suggestive cases has been observed in our territory (week 37), but their number remains at high levels, according to the latest epidemiological bulletin from the French Institute for Public Health Surveillance (InVS). Since the arrival of the virus, 2.595 suggestive cases have been seen in city medicine. Six new pregnant women have been infected since the last assessment (a total of 29 pregnant women). “A third of these women have already given birth. No congenital malformation linked to the virus has been declared, ”the bulletin said. Note that the existence of a correlation between the Zika virus and Guillain-Barré syndrome has been strengthened, according to work published last week in the journal New England Journal of Medicine. _EH
