The Zika Virus Detailed By Doctor Sergio Cortes

The Zika virus is new to the Western Hemisphere, first appearing in several Southern countries in April, 2015, including Colombia, Brazil, and Mexico. Brazilian doctor and health authority, Sergio Cortes has worked with the World Health Organization (WHO) to study Zika and help alleviate the problems it produces in its victims. He says there is not yet any way to vaccinate against the threat of the Zika virus. But, he outlines the efforts to prevent infection and treat the pain and inflammation in those who do contract the disease.
Since first appearing in Brazil in 2015, health care workers there are becoming quite concerned with the increase in cases of Zika. According to Dr. Cortes, Zika was first found in African countries such as Uganda, Tanzania, and Sierra Leone, in the 1940s. After spreading to India and Thailand it has begun to pop up in other locales. Sergio Cortes gave a detailed report on his Official Blog Page.

The symptoms of Zika infection are controllable and not nearly severe as some tropical diseases. However, the Brazilian Ministry of Health has stated that the virus is causing women who contract the virus while pregnant to deliver babies with the severe birth defect microcephaly. This means the babies have very small heads and brains with many physiological problems. They are distressed, hard to calm, and diminished mental capacities. The average lifespan of such children is about 10 years.

Contrary to some local superstitions, the only way to get infected with the Zika virus is to be bitten by a mosquito that carries it: Aedes aegypti. It is not communicated between animals or humans in any other manner. This is the mosquito that has also traditionally been the carrier of the dengue and chikungunya fever diseases. Symptoms of Zika can be treated with anti-inflammatory and pain killing drugs. However, Dr. Cortes warns on that standard aspirin, which contains acetylsalicylic acid should not be used, as it can reduce blood coagulation making it hard to stop any bleeding.

Another problem now being detected as being associated with Zika is a devastating neurological disorder called Guillain-Barré syndrome. Dr. Cortes notes that the WHO has found a connection with this autoimmune disease and the Zika virus.

European Union on the Brink of Crisis, According to Soros

Famed billionaire and philanthropist George Soros has offered up his insight on the state of the European Union as the Syrian refugee crisis continues to flood member nation and impact their shared economy.
In a recent sit-down with the New York Review of Books, Soros placed the epicenter of this crisis on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her response to the influx of refugees to Europe from Syria. Merkel has been known in the media to be one of the most intrepid supporters of the Syrian refugees, even going so far as to travel to the region in order to broker a series of deals with leaders of surrounding countries to better house the displaced Syrians and allow them to precipitously enter into EU member nations. This has caused her to butt heads with other European leaders, but being obstinate in her position has changed the opinions of many. But could this goodwill be at the expense of the European people?

Soros, who was quick to point out that Merkel herself had predicted an eventual collapse of the EU, accused the German leader along with others of not properly addressing their string of crises but merely managing the fallout, which has delayed the inevitable but has done nothing to address the actual problems that they face.

The only remedy he sees to this situation is for the German people to force Merkel into a line of action that avoids the liabilities Germany has taken on in order to remain the dominant economic power in the EU. This may be difficult to do, as it was mostly Merkel who changed the opinion of the German public concerning the admittance of Syrian refugees to the EU. Rousing support has been thrown her way because of it, and so has a great deal of criticism following demonstrations from far right, anti-immigrant groups and displays of sexual assault purportedly committed by refugees.

This condemnation of Germany’s immigration policy and its pressure on the EU economy is being shared by more than just George Soros. Alex Stubb, Finance Minister for Finland, has stated that while Germany may have been acting morally in supplying refugees with varying degrees of asylum, fundamental freedoms of citizens of the EU are being adversely impacted. He went on to say this comes at a time the EU is also handling a currency crisis and is being worsened by the influx of refugees.

Stubb, however, refused to say that refugees are taking advantage of the Schengen Agreement, which allows citizens of member nations to travel freely between them, for malicious purposes like terrorism. What he did profess was a need to integrate these new people into European society, making them gainfully employed and productive.
