Congress Pressured to Come Back to Address Zika Funding

Democrats killed it in a fight largely centered on a Republican provision restricting the involvement of Planned Parenthood in the anti-Zika fight (Zika can be sexually transmitted and contraception is recommended for people who have been or are at risk of being exposed).

That was Sen. Chuck Schumer's (D-N.Y.) message for his fellow senators and congress members Sunday as he demanded the passage of a $1.9 billion emergency funding bill needed to fight the growing spread of the Zika virus.

President Obama has been pushing for emergency money to fight Zika since February. "So we are using that model as we move forward", Philip said.

China demands Australian apology after 'malicious' attack on country's swimmers
The pair appeared to continue their ill feeling by ignoring each other while Horton was congratulated by the rest of the field. Sun served a three-month doping ban in 2014 that was kept secret and only announced in China retrospectively.

This is not the time for members of Congress to wage another partisan battle.The number of confirmed cases of Zika in the continental USA now has exceeded 1,800, making the fight against the unsafe virus even more urgent. Based on research and experience from other countries the assumption is that 10 per cent of pregnant women exposed to the zika virus may have a child with microcephaly. Places where the virus is now circulating include most of Latin America, the Caribbean and the Pacific Islands.

Currently, there is no vaccine or treatment for Zika, other than supportive care, rest, fluids and fever relief, CDPH officials said.

The first case of Zika in San Francisco was reported on March 3, followed by a second case reported on April 22.

U.S. urges patience in Argentina, wants Venezuela recall vote this year
The United States reiterated its commitment to support trade missions, noting the inclusion of Argentina in the U.S. The measures, however, have led to protests from Argentines upset at increased prices and lowered purchasing power.

The mosquito that carries the Zika virus was found three years ago in Menlo Park.

Freeman said there is a chance some of these mosquitoes could turn up along the Alabama Gulf Coast but he expects the numbers will be low just because not as many people travel to Alabama as they do Florida. They're mosquito traps, and if you see them, officials say to leave them alone.

Typically, Zika cases are discovered by a medical professional who notices symptoms and orders a Zika test. Urine tests can take two days, blood tests can take up to a week. Missouri has recorded 16 cases and IL 46, including three pregnant women.

Mortgage reduction after rate cut delayed for many until next month
Customers on base rate linked products will see the rate cut passed on in full. This is widely expected to not go down well with governor Mark Carney.

Microcephaly is a complication of the Zika Virus spread by the Aedes Aeypti mosquito, and most people do not know they have it. There have been more than 1,600 travel-related cases in the USA, nearly 400 of which were in Florida, according to Fauci. They advise residents to drain any sources of standing water, wear bug spray, cover skin with long clothing and ensure doors and windows have screens. Zika is in their backyard and their most important responsibility is to protect the health and safety of United States citizens.
