HEALTH CONCERN: First U.S. Death Related to Zika Virus Reported(A Puerto Rican man in his 70s)


Deaths are not common in Zika virus infection. The main concern is its link to abnormal births and neurological disorders in newborns.
The Puerto Rican man in his 70s who died from complications of the Zika virus was the first case of his kind in the U.S.
Reports say rate of infection could go up due to impending climate change.

I believe this has to do with the vector(aedes aegypti mosquito) of this disease because study has it that aedes aegypti mosquito is more active during the day...
