No link between microcephaly babies and Zika


Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr. Clive Tilluckdharry reports that four babies born with microcephaly in Trinidad and Tobago public hospitals have been shown to be Zika-negative. And the doctor says that they see between two to four cases a year.

According to the Health Ministry, the number of lab-confirmed Zika cases in Trinidad and Tobago was 254, however Dr Tilluckdharry believes the actual number of Zika cases may be in the thousands.

More proof that Zika is not to blame.

A baby who has microcephaly has a much smaller head than expected because their brain hasn’t developed properly during pregnancy or stopped growing after birth. And microcephaly can be an isolated condition, occurring with no other major birth defects, or in combination with other major birth defects.

Given the rise of microcephaly in Brazilian babies, the CDC claimed in February to have found a link between the Zika virus and the condition based on tests conducted on Brazilian babies. Again, this now calls that into question.
