CDC says the Zika virus linked to more birth defects and is coming farther north.

Posted by Stuart Rose on

The CDC is now saying that the Zika virus has been linked to a broader array of birth defects throughout a longer period of pregnancy, including premature birth and blindness in addition to the smaller brain size caused by microcephaly.

And it can be spread sexually, causing the CDC to update its guidance to couples.
