Emerging Infectious Diseases

To what could your neighbor have been exposed, and how could the exposure have occurred?

           Zika virus is an infectious disease influenced by microbial adaption and change and travel (DeMarco & Healey-Walsh, 2020). CDC (2019) identifies various symptoms of the Zika Virus, including fever, rash, headache, joint pain, conjunctivitis, and muscle pain. From the list of symptoms gathered from my neighbor, she may be infected with the virus. It is transmitted by mosquitoes that carry the virus, and a bite transmits the virus into the bloodstream. It is also possible for the virus to be transmitted sexually and through blood transfusion, as the virus remains in the body for a while, affecting people differently, and there may not be any signs or symptoms available in the person.

What advice would you give your neighbor?

           Mayo Clinic (2018) identifies risks of miscarriages linked to the Zika virus, making it crucial that the neighbor immediately sees a doctor. Although the symptoms go away after a week of rest and hydration, it poses a risk to the fetus by causing microcephaly, a potentially fatal congenital brain condition (Mayo Clinic, 2018). It can also cause other neurological disorders, which can be damaging to a developing fetus. Reduced body movement due to too much muscle tone after birth, eye damage, joint problems, and brain damage and reduced brain tissue are other complications and defects that the virus may cause to a child (Mayo Clinic, 2018). Since the virus remains in the bloodstream for about a week, conducting a blood test would confirm the virus’s presence or lack thereof. There is no known treatment for the virus, which makes prevention the best alternative available. Pregnant women should avoid traveling to places associated with the virus due to the various complications it ay have on fetus development.
