Caption

A measuring tape used by geneticist Dr. Ileana Mayes Flores at Tela Hospital in El Progreso City, Honduras, to measure head growth of babies born to mothers infected with Zika virus. These babies face a host of potential problems linked and known as Congenital Zika Syndrome. Some are born with microcephaly, a congenital malformation resulting in smaller than normal head size, caused by Zika. The virus can be spread by mosquitoes, from pregnant women to the fetus, through sex, and through blood transfusion.
