a higher incidence makes it easier to collect more data quickly But incidence in turn can be affected by the degree of immunity that a population naturally has acquired before the trial starts; specifically the virus will spread more slowly in populations that have already been exposed to it and developed effective immune responses Fauci noted that at the time NIAID set out to do Ebola vaccine efficacy trials in West Africa in 2015 there was a steep drop off in new infections making it more difficult to run effective trials “If that happens when Zika vaccine efficacy trials start” he said “it may take 3 years to show whether it works or not” But the massive Zika pandemic now underway unlike the Ebola epidemic is not expected to disappear from Latin America and the Caribbean any time soon Sylvain Aldighieri of the Pan American Health Organization in Washington DC—which cosponsored the conference with the US Department of Health and Human Services—said that to date the Zika pandemic has affected 37 countries and territories “We think that about 500 million people in the Americas are at risk to be infected by the Zika virus” Aldighieri said Zika triggers no detectable symptoms in roughly 80% of the people it infects but rarely causes serious harm “That’s one of the real issues we have with communications” Fauci said “How do you communicate the danger and the threat of a disease that’s fundamentally historically mild” But there is at least one real threat “which has thrust it upon the attention and concern of the entire world” Fauci said: If the virus infects pregnant women their babies can be born with small heads called microcephaly and other abnormalities Fauci stressed that “we don’t know exactly what the percent is” of Zika-infected women who will give birth to babies with related problems One small study suggested it may be as high as 29% but another study that used a very different methodology found it was only 1% To get more reliable numbers NIAID the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Brazilian researchers are planning to collaborate on a study that hopes to follow thousands of pregnant women in Zika-infected countries “We don’t know beyond microcephaly what the long-range effects are on babies who might look like they were born normal but might have defects that are more subtle—hearing vision intellectual and others” Fauci added “Although we know a lot about Zika literally every week that goes by we learn more and more”who is exploring the old genre of mujra with ‘Dil Mera Muft Ka’, solemn and beautiful. with our limitations and our strengths.
