Health Watch: New guidelines for pediatric Zika


Preventing Zika in children

A new Centers for Disease Control report should help pediatricians deal with the Zika virus.

The CDC says Zika should be suspected if a child traveled to an affected area and has at least two symptoms, including fever, rash, joint pain or pink eye.
