Can you imagine a recent study stated that Zika virus
can lead to pregnancy loss simply without any symptoms? Researchers have found
out that women infected with this virus have undergone miscarriages and
stillbirths without any visible symptoms.
“Many of the foetal and placental tissues had evidence
of Zika virus replication and also had pathological lesions, which further
supports the role of Zika virus in this detrimental outcome,” Koen Van Rompay,
a scientist at the University of California.
Zika virus causes headache, muscle and joint pain,
rash, red eyes and fever as well. “For pregnant women who live in areas where
Zika virus is prevalent, and who may experience spontaneous abortions, the
possible link to Zika virus infection may be missed,” said Lark Coffey, an
arbovirologist at UC Davis.
Doctors and the scientists showed clearly that women
exposed to Zika virus during the first trimester are more likely to experience
foetal death, placental dysfunction etc.
