More than 3,000 Zika Virus Cases Confirmed in El Salvador

Health Minister of El Salvador Violeta Menjivar confirmed on Monday 3,836 zika virus cases, including 63 pregnant women who are being followed up because the fetus show microcephaly.

Menjivar said that the illness was also associated with Guillain-Barré syndrome, which is caused when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the peripheral nervous system.

She also urged people to destroy breeding sites for mosquitoes, because Aedes aegypti can spread dengue fever, chikungunya and zika virus.

The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, muscle pain, headache, pain behind the eyes or conjunctivitis lasting for several days to a week.
