Das Zika-Virus grassiert inzwischen in 40 Ländern. Um es zu bekämpfen, werden teils drastische Maßnahmen ergriffen: Brasilien hat seine gesamte Armee für den Kampf gegen Zika mobilisiert. Da das Virus im Verdacht steht, bei Neugeborenen schwere Schädelfehlbildungen zu verursachen, befürwortet inzwischen sogar der Papst die Verhütung. Und die Weltgesundheitsorganisation hat den weltweiten Gesundheitsnotstand ausgerufen. Ist die Hysterie gerechtfertigt? Angelika Müller beschäftigt sich seit Jahrzehnten mit Gesundheitsfragen. Die Gründerin der „Elterninitiative für Impfaufklärung“ sieht im derzeitigen „Zika-Hype“ ein Ablenkungsmanöver im großen Stil, um von den wahren Verantwortlichen abzulenken. Ihr zufolge führt die Spur über ein international vernetztes Kartell bis in höchste Ränge der Gesellschaft, wo prominente Einzelpersonen von der Angst der Menschen profitieren…

Three years ago, the Zika virus was nowhere to be found in the Western Hemisphere. To date, the largest outbreak occurred in French Polynesia in 2013 with 383 reported cases. But in 2015, Brazil suddenly found itself with an unprecedented Zika outbreak. More than a million people have been infected by the mosquito-transmitted—and potentially sexually transmitted disease.
The mosquito-borne virus doesn’t seem to harm most of its victims. But there’s increasing evidence that it can cause serious damage to the brains of fetuses and, in rare instances, devastating neurological problems in adults.

As the virus spreads through countries in South America, health officials are growing increasingly worried about its rapid growth. They say that the U.S. could be hit hard as 24 countries worldwide are seeing it spread at an extremely alarming rate. It’s the Zika virus, and there is no cure.
Today video was requested by the following subscribers. If you have any other topics you’d like to learn about, subscribe and let us know in the comments section below.
Zika is a mosquito-borne virus transmitted by the Aedes mosquito. It was first discovered in 1947 by researchers in Uganda that were studying yellow fever. During the study, they noticed one particular monkey was suffering from a different type of fever and by 1952, they determined it was the Zika virus. The group also discovered that the virus was transmitted by mosquitos via the blood. It wasn’t until 2007, however, that any major outbreaks occurred. But even then, while there were about 49 cases on the island of Yap, no one was killed or even hospitalized.
Major outbreaks began occurring in Brazil in 2015. Soon after, the virus started spreading all over South and Central American countries such as Brazil, Bolivia, Venezuela, Haiti, Barbados, the Virgin Islands, Honduras, and Mexico. The virus has recently made its way to the United States as well, but only by travelers coming from the aforementioned places.
With the outbreak came the spread of the Zika fever, which is similar to the yellow fever, West Nile Viruses, and dengue fever. It causes rashes and fevers along with other symptoms including pinkeye and arthritis. These symptoms do not last very long, usually a week or less. However, health officials have recently discovered a possible connection between the fever and microcephaly; a dangerous neurodevelopmental disorder in babies resulting in a small, undeveloped brain that leads to seizures, motor function disturbances, and severe physiological effects throughout the body.
In the past two months alone, Brazil has seen nearly 5,000 babies born with Zika-induced microcephaly, 51 of which have died. There is currently no vaccine available to treat the Zika virus, so health officials recommend not traveling to countries where outbreaks have occurred. Some have even gone so far as to suggest that people delay pregnancies for the next two years while experts attempt to create a vaccine.
Additionally, health officials have been spraying pesticides to try to control the mosquito populations. They’ve also enlisted the help of the public by asking them to liminate all standing water that attracts mosquitoes, particularly in buckets and flower pots. Video Rating: / 5

The recent outbreak of Zika virus in Brazil could be linked to the release into the wild of genetically modified mosquitoes in recent field trials in Brazil funded by the Bill and Gates Foundation, it has emerged.
The Zika virus, which has been detected in 18 of the 26 states in Brazil, is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. A generically modified version has been developed by a British biotech company called Oxitec.
The results of a trial in Brazil published this summer involved genetically engineered mosquitoes that allegedly fight the spread of dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunya, and zika virus.
But scientists have warned the study had too few controls in place to ensure that the mosquitoes released into the wild did not end up spreading dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunya, and zika virus.
In short, these genetically modified mosquitoes could be the cause of the Zika virus outbreak in Brazil and other parts of South and Central America.
“If these mosquitoes are completely safe, then why the hush-hush?” says Gurmit Singh, chair of the Centre for Environment, Technology and Development in Malaysia, another country slated for an Oxitec field trial.
Oxford Insect Technologies, a British biotech company, has developed the insect with funds from the Bill and Gates foundation. It conducted the first outdoor trials with transgenic Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in the Caribbean island of Grand Cayman in autumn 2009.
