New CDC interim guidance issued today to assist state and local health departments with interpretation of Zika virus antibody test results. This guidance will help to prevent missed diagnoses of either dengue or Zika virus infections because of the implications for clinical management of both of these infections. Pregnant women with laboratory evidence of Zika virus infection should be evaluated and managed for possible adverse pregnancy outcomes and be reported to the relevant Zika virus pregnancy registry established by CDC for clinical follow-up. http://1.usa.gov/1Wv0flQ

New CDC data in New England Journal of Medicine estimates the risk of microcephaly related to Zika virus infection in the first trimester of pregnancy was approximately 1-13%. More research is needed to improve risk estimates in the first trimester of pregnancy and beyond. http://bit.ly/1WjQFlN

Moms and moms-to-be deserve the best— including the very best mental health. With as many as 1 in 9 women experiencing depression before, during, and after pregnancy, it’s vital for women to learn to recognize the symptoms of depression and to seek treatment if needed. Learn about maternal depression and resources that can help: bit.ly/1U2vZs0
Depression is common and treatable. Learn about symptoms and how to seek treatment.

About 795,000 people in the United States suffer from a stroke each year. Stroke care is estimated to cost the nation $33 billion annually, including the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity.

The Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report may be “The Voice of CDC,” but we publish timely, authoritative scientific submissions from epidemiologists and other health care professionals from outside CDC as well. On June 20, MMWR Editor-in-Chief Dr. Sonja Rasmussen and Technical Writer-Editor Jeff Sokolow will present “Publishing in Today’s MMWR: Widely Read, Widely Respected” at the 2016 Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) Annual Meeting. Interested in publishing in MMWR? You’ll want to attend. bit.ly/1TjUWov
A month from now many of you will be in Anchorage, gathered for the CSTE Annual Conference, sharing your expertise and building collaborations. Those are the very reasons it was important to me as the Editor-in-Chief of CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) that we be there, too.

As of May 12, 2016, there were 157 pregnant women with any laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus infection in US states and 122 in US territories. To gain a more complete picture of the impact of Zika virus infection during pregnancy, CDC is changing the way it reports the number of pregnant women with Zika in the US states and territories. Read more in this week’s MMWR http://1.usa.gov/1U4PzDP

Pregnant and worried about Zika? Cover up and use EPA-registered insect repellent, remove standing water, keep mosquitoes out of your home, and use condoms to help prevent the spread of Zika virus. Watch this video to learn more about preventing Zika: http://bit.ly/1rDeQi0
