Now add to the fray, as of February 2016, the Zika Virus. The World Health Organization has identified the Zika Virus as a threat to public health, and has released the symptoms and precautionary measures necessary to reduce the reproduction of mosquitos and the transmission of the virus.
Vietnam has so far had 2 confirmed cases of the Zika Virus since the start of April. Others who are suspected of having been exposed to the virus are displaying no symptoms at present. With no treatment available for the virus, avoiding mosquito bites is the key to prevention.
Through educational seminars such as this one, CNCF aims to improve the health of our children and the community. We would stress to those reading this and who are living in Vietnam to employ extra precautions this monsoon season.
