    In both the Brazil and French Polynesia outbreaks, researchers noted that some people infected with the virus were later diagnosed with Guillain-Barré, a rare and sometimes deadly neurological condition in which people's immune systems damage their nerve cells, leading to muscle weakness and even paralysis. The symptoms can last weeks, months, or even years. So it is not only harmfull to new born.

    we don't stop Carnival because Zika is spread by a mosquito , not by human contact.
    Some cities cancel Carnival but was because of economy.
    Zika threat only to a pregnant woman and her baby and that's all.
    Stop all this terror.We are concerned only with the country's babies, a generation of microcephalic would be disastrous.
