Care and You® develops innovative solutions to protect travelers and people suffering from diseases transmitted by mosquitoes or other insects.
Global warming, particularly temperature increases, repeated flooding and the flow of international transportation, promote the development of mosquitoes and their appearance in new areas.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a temperature rise of 1 to 2°C over the coming decades could extend northward the presence of mosquito vectors of tropical diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya or Zika.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared that the spread of Zika virus was "a public health emergency of global reach."
As Dengue and Chikungunya, Zika is transmitted by a mosquito bite (Aedes type).
Affected individuals generally have a mild fever, exanthema and conjunctivitis. Normally, these symptoms disappear within 2-7 days. (Source WHO)
There is currently no vaccine or treatment.
The spread of the virus is expanding today through protection, education, use of repellents and larvicides and by insecticide spraying operations inside and outside homes.
Travelers, expatriates or sedentary employees and local people especially pregnant women and infants are exposed in the countries touched by the virus especially in the following regions : North America, South, the Caribbean Islands and Asia. The epidemic could spread rapidly to other parts of the world.
