Mosquito Maladies? No Thanks!

Hello Grafted in Readers,

Today is Monday, Sept. 12 in my corner of blog land; still mild as we slowly transition from summer to Autumn. Our friends in the UK are transitioning from Spring to Summer.

One thing is of immediate concern for both sides of the equator: the Zika virus. Recently, "Housecall" produced by Mayo Clinic in the USA, ran a short piece or update concerning this condition. I highlight the facts below.

-The virus occurs in tropic and sub-tropic parts of the world.
-Symptoms: headache, rash, red eyes, mild fever, general discomfort.
-Zika virus is transmitted by the mosquito, worldwide.
-Neurologic conditions such as microcephaly and Guillain-Barr syndrome can result from Zika virus.
-Prevention: Vaccination pending, but take precautions so to reduce mosquito inhabitation and likelihood of mosquito bites.

Kevod Yeheveh, The Lord be with us indoors and outdoors on the journey.

Thanks for stopping by and maybe leaving a comment!
