Zika Virus's Other Looming Threat

When the World Health Organization declared a global health emergency on Monday, it didn't cite the Zika virus itself as the reason. The emergency, it said, is the alarming rise in cases of microcephaly and Guillan Barre Syndrome. At this time we have no other convincing explanation for the spike in these two conditions than the Zika virus. GBS, an autoimmune disease, puts everyone, potentially, at risk - males and females, pregnant or not, and there's nothing we can do to make sure any particular case of Zika infection doesn't turn into GBS.
