Viris Zika ateri an Ayiti

Kounye a se yon posibilite. Viris Zika te ateri an Ayiti. Pan American Oganizasyon Sante (OPS) te konfime ka viris Zika a an Ayiti. Baze sou yon tès laboratwa ki fèt dènyèman nan Trinidad ak Tobago sou 11 moun an Ayiti, rezilta a konfime ke senk nan echantiyon san ayisyen yo te teste pozitif pou maladi a. Zika lakòz sentòm grav tankou lafyèv, pafwa gratèl, konjonktivit ak tèt fè mal. Pou fanm ansent, Zika ka koze domaj nesans ak foskouch. Twa ka nan moun ki enfekte avèk viris la pa menm remake li.
