The Zika Virus and How AVON can Help


Have you heard the recent ‘buzz’ about the Zika Virus? The Zika Virus has recently become part of mainstream news.  As if it wasn’t bad enough we are inundated with information every summer with the West Nile Virus. Its a double whammy this year as we are faced with both Zika and West Nile!     No one likes to be bit by mosquitos and as we speak, mosquito season is in full effect.

  • There have been over 500 travel related confirmed Zika cases in the US (the most in New York City)
  • The Zika virus could be transmitted sexually with an infected person
  • The CDC suggests avoid contacting the virus by avoiding mosquito bites
  • The Zika virus is dangerous for pregnant women
