Public Health Information
To Hudson County Community: As you may have heard, on February 1, 2016 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Zika Virus an International Public Health Emergency due to its apparent association with microcephaly. Microcephaly is a condition in which infants are born with heads smaller than normal, and is associated with developmental delays, conditions such as cerebral palsy, and can result in death for these children. Researchers are investigating the link between mothers infected with Zika Virus during pregnancy and the subsequent birth of infants with microcephaly. It is important to note that there are no locally transmitted cases in the United States, only cases linked to travel to Zika affected countries. To date, NJ has documented only one imported case in a person who had traveled to Columbia. The woman has returned home and has recovered. Attached are the frequently asked questions regarding the Zika Virus.
As always, please feel free to contact HRHC with any questions or concerns you may have. You are also encouraged to visit our website at www.hudsonregional.org and look for health education resources on Zika Virus under “What’s New.” Many of the resources are available in English, Spanish and Portuguese. You can also follow us on Twitter at @HudsonRegHealth for the latest information about Zika and other public health concerns that make affect you.
