ZIKA- What You should know!

As The Telegraph told on 28th May 2017, India has reported cases of the  Zika virus, the World Health Organization said, adding that efforts should be made to strengthen surveillance.
The WHO said that on May 15 India's health ministry reported three confirmed cases from the western state of Gujarat. Cases were detected during testing in February and November last year, while one was detected in January this year.
If you remember, ZIKA was the dangerous pandemic recently in 2016, which has been declared as the Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) by WHO.
A disease which had spread explosively but silently and had no cure or vaccine, which was thought as mild fever once but later found related to horrendous deformity in babies and a rare immune disorder in adults.
This is a spreading disease, so it is very important to get aware and be preventive.
I have published an awareness article about this infirmity back in 2016, which I think is worth sharing now. Prevention is always better and getting informed is the key.
