Dr.Sergio Cortes Discusses The Zika Virus in Brazil

The Zika virus has emerged this year very prominently in Latin America. The virus first was discovered in the 1940s in Uganda. And then spread through Asia India and Thailand. According to an article in National Public Radio 3500 babies are now being born with microcephaly. Microcephaly is a birth defect that has been closely linked to the Zika virus. Many doctors in Brazil and throughout the world believe that there is a connection linking these two maladies.

This virus is mosquito borne and has also started to show up in Mexico, Colombia and several states of the United States like Florida and Texas. The Zika virus may also be linked to Guillain-Barré syndrome.

The World Health Organization had recently seen the Zika virus circulate deeply into Latin America. The World Health Organization issued a warning about the Zika Virus and the ramifications it can have on human health.

Dr. Sergio Cortes explains that the Zika Virus may also be related to some cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome which also been linked to microcephaly. The first documented case of the Zika Virus in Brazil was in May of 2015, the link establishing a relationship between the virus and microcephaly was confirmed by the end of August by the Brazilian Ministry of Health. Dr. Sergio Cortes explains that the Zika virus is not a contagious disease at all and they cannot be transmitted from one human to another. The only way to catch the virus is from a mosquito bite from an insect name the Aedes Aegypti. Dr Sergio Cortes goes on to explain that in a healthy mosquito bites a person that has the Zika virus, then that mosquito will in turn become infected and can then pass the virus along to another person. Another concern that Dr. Cortes revealed was that the eggs of the infected Aedes Aegypti can remain inert for a one-year in a dry place and can then redevelop by simply touching one drop of water.

According to Dr. Sergio Cortes, the symptoms can vary somewhat from person to person and the most common elements are fever, muscle aches and rash. These symptoms usually take 3 to 7 days to disappear. The problem is that many pregnant mothers have been transmitting the Zika Virus to their unborn children. Dr. Cortes informs us that there are no further tests or examinations specifically designed to detect the Zika virus. This disease is always difficult to diagnose which can only be done after a series of complex exams. There is still no specific treatment for curing the disease and according Dr.Cortes at this point all that can be done is to help relieve the symptoms. Anti-inflammatory drugs, paying relievers may help but Dr. Sergio Cortes points out that any medicines known such as aspirin can contribute to patient bleeding and should be avoided.

According to the Ministry of health in Brazil it is essential to pregnant women all women that are planning to become pregnant should take special measures to try to avoid contact with mosquitoes.

FreedomPop Has A Cell Phone Plan For Everyone

Unlimited plans are the best because of the fact that they allow cell phone users to make unlimited phone calls, text messages, and use their data freely. Those who have been with AT&T and Verizon may not have been allowed to get unlimited cell phone plans, but according to an article on the Post Bulletin website, AT&T as well as Verizon is bringing back unlimited cell phone plans. Unlike their competitors, the cell phone plans from these companies will cost upwards of $100 or more each month for the plan. This is good news for AT&T and Verizon users, but those who use FreedomPop services only pay $20 per month for an unlimited plan.

Anyone who’s ever had to find places to make a phone call when they leave their home may be more than frustrated because it can be very annoying. Those who have chosen to save money by not buying a cell phone may be missing out entirely. Buying a cell phone can be very helpful, especially since they are very low in cost these days. It’s not unusual for cell phone companies to allow a person to have a phone free of charge, and they just have to pay for a cell phone plan. The cell phone plan may also be low in cost, and then the person is truly getting a good deal.

FreedomPop is a company that has free cell phone service, which is not something that a person will find with any other service provider out there. Other service providers will require that a person sign up for a lengthy plan, in order to get any kind of free service, and it’s still very likely that they’ll pay each month at the beginning of their service. Those who want unlimited minutes should consider FreedomPop’s unlimited plan.

FreedomPop’s unlimited cell phone service plan is only $20 a month, and for $20 a person can talk as much as they want, text anyone they want, and use their data as freely as they want to. FreedomPop offers these services to anyone who signs up, and the unlimited plan also includes some international calling as well. Not all cell phone services can say that they allow their customers to call several places internationally under the same cell phone plan, without any extra charge. FreedomPop does offer free services as well, and those services are cell phone service, the Internet, Wi-Fi, and data for a hotspot. With all the services that FreedomPop offers, there’s no need to check with other service providers.
