The spread of Zika virus

Zika virus was first detected in Uganda, Africa, in 1947. In 2007, there was an outbreak in Micronesia and Polynesia, South Pacific. Now, there is an epidemic in South America such as Brazil. We suspect it causes birth defects like small head. We hope that the Malaysian Health Ministry takes preventive measures against Zika.
