Sergio Cortes on Winning the Battle Against the Zika Virus


Sergio Cortes has become one of the leading authorities in the fight against the zika virus in the world. On his official site, he blogs about steps that can be taken to stop the mosquito from further infecting people. He says that it is important that any standing water be eliminated if possible. He also points out that the eggs can live up to one year and still hatch if they get wet.
On February 24, 2016, Director-General Margaret Chan of the World Health Organization praised efforts by the Brazil’s government to stop the zika virus. Recently, the country opened its first farm to produce genetically modified mosquitoes. In small trials, these mosquitoes have been shown to be highly effective through breeding with the mosquitoes responsible for causing the zika virus. If effective, the cost for the program will be about $120 a year per individual.
Margaret Chan also the World Health Organization would be giving out 500,000 test kits allowing doctors to test for three different diseases at the same time. Currently, tests are limited. Practitioners are also forced to test for each disease separately. Doing so, increases the cost of the tests. Furthermore, doing so increases anxiety in patients.
Finally Margaret Chan praised efforts by the government to increase knowledge within the medical community. This course ensures that those working in isolated areas have the best knowledge. This course is offered free. Yet, doctors can receive education credits for completing the course.
Sergio Cortes agrees with Margaret Chan that Brazil can be very proud of steps that the government is taking. He believes that the public also needs good knowledge. Therefore, he promises to keep spreading the message through his Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. While the government admits that it is an uphill battle when everyone works together everyone wins.
