The Zika Virus & Autoimmune Paralysis

As an epidemic, the Zika virus is well-known for affecting newborns to cause microcephaly - tiny heads and underdeveloped brains.  What hasn't been covered extensively by the media is that the Zika virus can also attack the immune system to cause Guillain -Barre syndrome - an ascending paralysis that can travel from the limbs and face to the chest, along with persistent muscle weakness.  Once it reaches the breathing muscles, the victim would have to be put on a ventilator.  Recovery can be within six months to a year.

A big concern is that American travelers who go to the Olympics in Rio and get the virus  may seed outbreaks in their hometowns when local mosquitoes bite them.  Health officials are more concerned about Guillain-Barre paralysis as a bigger threat to the American hospital system.  About 35 states in the U.S. have the carrier mosquitoes named Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti.

Currently, there are nearly 20 laboratories working on a vaccine.  It may be available anywhere between 2018 - 2021.

"Some fear the risk of triggering Guillain-Barre paralysis will make a vaccine impossible," explained Donald McNeil Jr., the science reporter covering plagues and pestilences for "The New York Times."  He had been reporting its spread from Brazil, the epicenter of the Zika virus, since last year.
