How to avoid Zika-related illness: What you need to know
In an attempt to prevent more cases of Zika, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state health departments are trying to increase surveillance and testing.
The states and cities are also launching programs to vaccinate pregnant women, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is providing financial support for health care workers.
But while the CDC and other federal agencies are working to contain the virus, the number of confirmed cases of the Zika virus is increasing.
The Centers for Diseases Control and Safety is also warning about the spread of the virus.
The CDC is working to increase testing, but that won’t happen overnight, said Dr. Scott Siegel, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Control in Atlanta.
There is a need to continue monitoring people and to educate them about their options, Siegel said.

“It’s not over yet.

Zika was first identified in Brazil and spread through the Americas.
The virus has been transmitted from mosquitoes to humans through the air and via the blood and urine of infected people.
The CDC said the virus is being passed from person to person by direct contact with the blood or urine of an infected person.
The infected person’s antibodies attack the virus and attack its protective cells.
In some cases, the virus can also infect the cells of the immune system of a healthy person.
Zika has caused serious health problems in other countries.
In Mexico, it killed more than 400 people and infected over a million, according to the country’s health ministry.
Zika has also been linked to Guillain-Barré syndrome, a severe brain disorder in which patients are unable to understand or communicate.
The Zika virus has also made its way into the United States, where there have been at least 13 reported cases of microcephaly, or small head size, in pregnant women.
In the U.S., the CDC estimates that at least 1.6 million people have been infected.
The agency said the Zika outbreak has affected 2.5 million people worldwide.
