THE ZIKA CRISIS: Latest Findings
Presented in Collaboration with Reuters
The ongoing spread of the Zika virus — and its unconfirmed potential links to a birth defect called microcephaly — have raised worldwide alarms. This Forum will examine what we know and don’t know about the virus, drawing parallels and lessons from another disease outbreak, Ebola, that we can apply to the Zika emergency. An expert panel will discuss the current status of our understanding of the Zika virus and its health effects; containment strategies, including controlling the mosquitoes that primarily spread the virus; and feasibility of a vaccine and treatment options.
