CDC’s Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity Resource Provides Zika Update

Recently, the Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity—a resource provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention—released an update concerning the Zika virus. During a free CME session, representatives reviewed the new guidelines, which focus on clinical laboratory testing and the care of infants with congenital Zika virus infection.   

It’s estimated that more than 1,000 pregnant women in the United States and its territories show laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus. Challenges with diagnosing the infection exist, however, and the new guidelines help address these issues.
