AFP, , Monday 25 Apr 2016


The World Health Organization warned Monday of the potential for a "marked increase" in the number of Zika infections in the coming months, and its spread to new parts of the world.

With mosquito season arriving in Europe, "the possibility of local transmission combined with the likelihood of onward sexual transmission could see a marked increase in the number of people with Zika and related complications," WHO assistant director general Marie-Paule Kieny told a scientific Zika conference in Paris.
