Sharing Information on Zika
How do you digest information? Are you someone that is good at breaking down text to find the facts that you need? Do you like to perhaps watch a video to pick up your information receptors? Whatever works for every individual is important, especially when it comes to communicating important health risks. We thought we would share this great infographic (for those of you who like visual) about the Zika virus. The mosquito borne illness that’s making headlines all over the world.

Some really helpful information about the origin of the virus, how to spot symptoms, the parts of the world that are currently active with the virus transmission and of course, preventative measures.
The Zika virus is a mosquito-borne illness that “poses a significant threat to many of our state’s most vulnerable population – pregnant women and the unborn,” said the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).
As mosquito season arrives, what precautions are you taking to protect yourself? Do you have all the information you need to contribute to the fight against Zika? Perhaps you know someone that could benefit from this helpful infographic? Every contribution to raise awareness counts.
