WHO: Microcephaly and Zika virus infection

“Countries really need to get on a war footing against the mosquito”. These are the concluding words of an excellent 4-minute video statement by Dr Anthony Costello, Director of WHO’s Department of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health.


The video is in English. It needs to be available also with Portuguese and Spanish subtitles.

Best wishes, Neil
