The US is facing its most severe Zika virus pandemic yet, with states facing an unprecedented number of travelers to areas where the virus has been spreading.
Here are 10 tips to avoid spreading the virus.
(Monica Akhtar/The Washington Post)The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a travel warning to citizens from the affected states, warning of travel restrictions and warnings that the virus could infect and cause microcephaly and other neurological problems.
The US has now reported 4,081 confirmed cases of the Zika virus, including 2,831 babies born with microcephi and 3,826 babies with microcysticercosis.
The CDC says that 1,000 people in Texas have been diagnosed with microcephalic syndrome, which can cause a lack of oxygen in the brain.
The agency has also issued a “travel alert” to the affected areas.
A US state can impose a travel ban as long as it meets three conditions:1.
The state can prove that the travel restrictions are necessary to protect the health and safety of its residents.2.
The travel restrictions would not adversely impact the health of US citizens and permanent residents, as long the restrictions are not in violation of the health laws of the state.3.
The restriction would not create a hardship for US citizens, permanent residents and U.S. citizens or residents who are legal permanent residents of the United States.
The latest CDC report has shown that Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and North Carolina have reported more cases of microcephelas than all other states combined.
Texas and Louisiana are the two states with the highest number of cases.
The number of confirmed cases in each state increased from 31 in April to 57 in September, with the most recent case occurring in Louisiana.
Arkansas has reported the most cases with 10,788, while North Carolina has reported 3,945 cases, including 1,971 babies born microcephalically.
The CDC has not released its final tally of confirmed Zika cases.
In Mississippi, the number of microcephalics has more than doubled, from one to two.
The number of babies born by caesarean section has risen from 1,854 in April 2015 to 3,086 in September.
In North Carolina, more than a third of babies with congenital microcephalic syndrome are born with the condition, and the state has reported 8,056 microcepes.
States in the West are also experiencing an unprecedented outbreak of the virus in Texas, where more than 200,000 travelers have been infected and more than 100 people have died.
There are now more than 10,000 Zika infections in the United State, with many states reporting the most reported cases in the nation.
The virus has also spread to some of the states that were hit hardest by the pandemic, including Washington, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
Washington, Alaska and Oregon are the only other states where the disease is widespread.
The new travel alerts are being issued to the states in a bid to curb the spread of the new virus, as well as to keep Americans from traveling to the areas with the virus, such as Puerto Rico and the U.K.
As many as 11 states and the District of Columbia have declared states of emergency to try to control the spread.
The U.N. health agency has warned that the outbreak could spread rapidly.
Airlines are also urging travelers to avoid traveling to parts of the U, such a New Jersey and Florida airports, where there are reported cases of travel bans.
More than 200 airlines and cruise ships have suspended or postponed all or part of their scheduled voyages through the weekend.
Airline travel has been suspended in many U.P.A. destinations, including Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Dubai and Hong Kong.
There are also several U.L.A.-based cruise ships and cruise lines operating through the Caribbean, the Middle East and Africa.
