Journal notes

Zika virus’ effects are broader than first thought

This is going from bad to even worse. I don’t know how parents can deal with this virus. If this spreads out of control the impacts to society will be rather large.

Babies may have to deal with far more than small heads.  Zika is disrupting brain development — microcephaly is a frequent result of that, but there can also be issues around the cortex (which is crucial to coordination and memory) that show up first and may only materialize on the outside as the child grows.
