The Zika virus has been creating a lot of headlines these past few months. After the outbreak in Africa, a number of cases of Zika virus infection has been discovered in certain parts of the United States. Although there are still a lot of misconceptions about the latest news, the government is working together with top universities such as the University of Arizona and their Master of Public Health departments to come up with a vaccine or an alternative solution to a possible outbreak.

The stream of information will help prevent further outbreak.Be sure to learn more about the virus from Targeting Zika: The Threat and Fight Against the Virus by the University of Arizona.
