Doctors at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey confirmed Tuesday the birth of a child suffering from Zika-linked microcephaly, a condition wherein the child's brain and head are partially developed.
The mother, who is 31 but whose name was not disclosed, contracted the Zika virus while in Honduras and was admitted to the emergency room at Hackensack on Friday while vacationing in the United States. Tuesday, doctors delivered her baby girl, who was born also with intestinal and visual issues. Reports indicate she is the first child born with Zika-linked complications in the New York tri-state area.

The child’s mother, who developed a rash for two days in Honduras but had no other symptoms until arriving in the U.S., was under the care of a surgical team led by Dr. Abdulla Al-Khan and Dr. Manny Alvarez, senior managing health editor at FoxNews.com and chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Hackensack. A neonatologist and pediatric infectious disease specialist, as well as nursing personnel, were on hand for the birth.

If you are pregnant and you travel to an area with a known risk for this virus, you are a moron plain and simple. Why the # would you risk it for anything what so ever.
In my Island in PR zika is running rampant but so far no death cases and neither babies with microcephaly.

there was talk of delaying or moving the olympics but Rio refused.....their president was recently ousted.....venues and transportation not ready...they will use buses as a back up
150 miles away there was a horrible leakage last year , dike broke ,the slag waste leaked into the rivers......how can the olympics NOT spread the zeka virus?
