About 3.3 million US women are at risk of exposing a developing baby to alcohol.  They are drinking and not using birth control to prevent pregnancy. Alcohol can cause problems for a developing baby at any stage of pregnancy, even as early as the first few weeks. All types of alcohol are equally harmful, including wine and beer. 1.usa.gov/1WKaW0V

CDC has updated interim guidance for healthcare providers in the United States caring for pregnant women and women of reproductive age with possible Zika virus exposure. The updated guidelines recommend that pregnant women without symptoms of Zika virus disease can be offered testing 2-12 weeks after returning from areas with ongoing Zika virus transmission. All travelers to or residents of areas with ongoing Zika virus transmission should strictly follow measures to prevent mosquito bites. http://1.usa.gov/1nMa7bx

CDC has issued new interim guidance on preventing sexual transmission of Zika virus after confirming through laboratory testing, in collaboration with Dallas County Health and Human Services, the first case of non-vector-borne Zika virus infection in a non-traveler in the continental United States during this outbreak. Although sexual transmission of Zika virus infection is possible, mosquito bites remain the primary way that Zika virus is transmitted. Because there currently is no vaccine or treatment for Zika virus, the best way to avoid Zika virus infection is to prevent mosquito bites. http://1.usa.gov/1T2HjsB

Excuse, but since when did the Zika Mosquito, which is now genetically defunct become dangerous to anyone outside the Zika Tribe except in the propaganda news. CDC explain please.
