“If you’re a doctor, you can’t keep your mouth shut about Zika virus”
Emergency clinics, emergency departments, and ambulances across the country have seen a spike in Zika infections in recent weeks, as officials warn that people are becoming increasingly susceptible to the virus.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Friday that there were 824 confirmed Zika infections since the beginning of March, which was a 41% increase over the same time last year.
The virus has now been detected in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam.
The number of confirmed cases in Puerto Rican hospitals has climbed to a record high of 1,967, according to the Puerto Rico Public Health Office.
On Friday, the American Association of Public Health Agencies said that the number of reported Zika cases in the U, Puerto Rico and the Us.
Virgin islands has jumped to 5,921.
The AAPHA has also said that a total of 8,869 cases have been confirmed in the continental U. S., including 3,743 cases in Texas and 2,971 cases in Florida.
AAPHA says the virus is highly infectious and can be transmitted through direct contact with blood, saliva, vaginal fluid, and mucous membranes.
It can also be spread through other bodily fluids, including saliva, sweat, tears, and blood.
The number of infections in the United States have reached the highest levels since March, when the CDC reported that there had been 3,634 confirmed cases.
This week, the CDC released data showing that 1,065 cases of Zika have been reported in the states of Texas and Florida.
As of Saturday, there were 5,827 confirmed cases, the highest number in at least six months.
The new numbers come amid heightened debate over how quickly the virus can be spread.
In recent days, the World Health Organization has said that people who have traveled to countries with high rates of Zika outbreaks could face higher risk of transmitting the virus, which is thought to have originated in the Americas.
The U.K. is also preparing to set up a Zika testing center to test for the virus there, but officials have not yet announced plans to set it up in the country.
Meanwhile, a group of U.N. officials are urging the U of S. to allow Zika cases to be confirmed.
The officials said on Saturday that they are urging U.P. and Puerto Rico to allow the virus to be officially confirmed within 48 hours of being confirmed in a given country, in order to speed up the process of testing those who have tested positive.
The U.G. has not officially confirmed the Zika virus in Puerto Ricos territories, but the U S. Virgin Island announced last week that it had confirmed the virus in the Virgin Islands.
The CDC says it is not yet clear whether Zika can spread between the US. and U.W. Territories.
