Authorities confirmed the first case of imported zika in Uruguay

 
 
This is a man who traveled to Rio de Janeiro where he contracted the disease
For the first time a case of imported zika was confirmed Uruguay. This is a Uruguayan man who traveled to Rio de Janeiro, where he contracted the disease, according to El Pais and confirmed sources of theMinistry of Public Health (MSP) to El Observador. So far not detected indigenous cases of the disease, as neither of chikungunya were reported. However, other imported cases of both diseases were confirmed.
 
The zika is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito virus, the same officiating virus as a vector ofdengue and chikungunya, which entered Latin America through Easter Island, Chile, in February 2014. The rapid expansion of disease by the countries of the region demonstrated the potential disease spread by where the vector.
 
The fear is that the authorities are increasing studies showing a correlation between virus infection in pregnant women and the appearance of malformations in newborns, as confirmed by the Minister of Health, Jorge Basso.
 
The zika generates a viral infection, similar and milder than the other viruses, which manifests itself through symptoms such as fever, malaise, joint pain and conjunctivitis type. Overall it goes unnoticed as a cold. However, in most cases the infected people do not develop symptoms, only one of every four people these symptoms manifest.
 

According to international experiences it has been the co-circulation of two viruses so a person can become a carrier of Zika virus and dengue virus at the same time. However, it has not proven that its gravity is greater.

Weeks ago, both experts Faculty of Sciences and the authorities of the MSP had stated that the number of cases "explode" at Easter considering increasing Uruguayan sightseeing in the region, which could come into contact with the virus in the outside. In addition, continued until mid-April period increased involvement of the mosquito, so it could collaborate with increasing cases of infection.
