Update on the Zika Virus – It’s not in Oregon unless you have sex with a Zika sick person

Zika carrying mosquito South and Central America mostly.  Avoid travel in Texas and Florida.

Zika carrying mosquito
South and Central America mostly. Avoid travel in Texas and Florida.


The Centers for Disease Control are reporting that there are a few scattered cases of Zika virus around the U.S., even a couple in Oregon, but the victims are not all that sick. Some exposed to the mosquito bite never get sick. But it has been linked to birth defects – notably babies with smaller heads.

The good news is that the mosquito that carries the Zika virus doesn’t live in the U.S. So any spread of the virus is from human to human. So anyone returning to Oregon after having traveled in southern Texas – especially parts that run along the Mexican border or while traveling in Brazil – and was bitten by a mosquito should see a doctor just to be sure. And refrain from any unprotected intimate contact with other humans.

Again, Zika is not life threatening and symptoms are usually not severe. And they normally pass quickly. It’s just that it has terrible in-the-womb effects on a fetus.
