Written in clear language and in a highly navigable question-and-answer format, this book offers expert answers to the most common and difficult questions surrounding this new global threat: · Where did Zika come from? · Where is Zika likely to migrate geographically? · What are the risks associated with travel and sex in Zika-affected areas? · Does Zika cause birth defects in all pregnant hosts? · Do some people's medical histories make them more susceptible to Zika? · How long after infection is conception safe? · Is a Zika vaccine likely? Authored by two of the world's leading infectious disease experts, this book offers practical and accessible information on this most unpredictable epidemic. It cuts through the slow, opaque information feed of the world's shepherding health organizations to provide the most current information available and a reliable resource for those who stand to be affected.
