What is a Zika virus?

The term Zika virus, a mosquito-borne disease that has been spreading rapidly across Latin America, has been described by experts as the most devastating of all the world’s pandemics.

But it has been widely misunderstood, and many experts have argued that the term Zika means just one thing: a virus that causes an abnormal, sometimes fatal neurological condition.

It is not clear what the actual biological functions of Zika are.

As with any virus, its effects can be harmful or helpful.

But unlike other diseases, Zika has not been linked to an increase in microcephaly in babies born with the disease.

The only link to microcephalism has been to a single case of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) in an infant who had a mild fever and who had symptoms that mimicked those of Zika.

GBS is an incurable neurological disorder in which babies with severe neurological problems cannot speak, walk or swallow.

Although it is rare in people, it can occur in babies who have had the infection for longer than 24 hours.

Zika is a mosquito borne virus, which means that it is transmitted by mosquitoes, which carry the virus and carry it with them to new places in the world.

Zika has been linked in recent years to microcystic fibrosis (CF), an incipient neurological disorder that can cause severe developmental and cognitive problems in children.

CF affects about 1 in every 50,000 children in the United States and Canada.

Zika can also cause mild cases of Guillemette disease (GMD), a genetic condition in which a person’s immune system is overactive and causes severe neurological disorders.

Symptoms of Guilles-Barré syndrome can include: tremors, seizures, and muscle spasms, as well as loss of coordination and weakness
