Everyday we're inundated with thoughts of how humanity can be wiped out. The threats from the microbe world (Ebola, avian flu, swine flu, super-bugs, anti-bacteria resistant microbes) seem to lurk at edge of our vision. We are behind at every step. It feels helpless and terrifying. I wish the media would stop sensationalizing these issues, and really give us facts.

This is from the CDC site

Guidance for areas of active transmission (Red area)

The guidance below applies to people who live in or traveled to the newly designated 1-square mile area of Miami-Dade County any time after August 26, and the previously identified 4.5-square-mile area of Miami Beach any time after July 14, 2016. This timeframe is based on the earliest time symptoms can start and the maximum 2-week incubation period for Zika virus.

Travel

Pregnant women should not travel to these areas.

Prevention

Pregnant women and partners of pregnant women living in or traveling to these areas should strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites.
Women and men who live in or traveled to these areas and who have a pregnant sex partner should use condoms to prevent infection every time they have sex or not have sex during the pregnancy.

Testing and Diagnosis

Pregnant women who live in or frequently travel to these areas should be tested in the first and second trimester of pregnancy.
Pregnant women who traveled to or had unprotected sex with a partner who traveled to or lives in these areas should be tested for Zika based on the time of evaluation relative to symptom onset or possible exposure.

Pregnancy Planning

- Women and men who live in or frequently travel to these areas should talk to their healthcare provider about plans for pregnancy.
- Women and men who are planning to conceive in the near future should consider avoiding nonessential travel to these areas.
- Women who traveled to these areas should wait at least 8 weeks, regardless of whether they had symptoms, before trying to get pregnant.
- Men who traveled to these areas should wait at least 6 months, regardless of whether they had symptoms, before trying to get their partner pregnant.
