******* please respond to the discussion below with a paragraph add citation and references 🙂 ********With travel being easily attainable today and the large influx of asylum seekers migrating to the United States, it is inevitable that disease and illness will accompany. The Zika virus is a global health issue that is most commonly spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Zika can also be transmitted through sex and passed along to a fetus by a pregnant mother. People infected with the Zika virus may experience mild symptoms such as: fever, rash, headache, joint pain, conjunctivitis, and muscle soreness. These symptoms usually only last several days to a week (CDC, 2019b). The major threat of the Zika virus is within the pregnant population. Congenital Zika Syndrome can cause fetal brain defects such as severe microcephaly, decreased brain tissue with patterned damage, damage to the back of the eye, compromised joint mobility and hypertonicity (CDC, 2019b). The association between Zika virus infection during pregnancy and severe birth defects in infants has launched worldwide attention focused on the mechanisms of the disease and the prevention of future exposure (Wheeler, 2018). In my NICU located in San Diego, California, there was a baby I cared for last year that was born with Congenital Zika Syndrome. Our Neonatologists collaborated with our infectious disease nurse after confirmation of lab results who helped in creating a mandatory report to the California Public Health Department. The health care teams, the Public Health Departments, and the CDC all collaborate information in notifiable disease surveillance to help protect Americans from health threats (CDC, 2018a).Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
