Posted September 01, 2018 09:11:49 When Tania Persis of Toronto, Canada, first heard the news that her baby girl was dying in hospital, she couldn’t believe it.
“I thought it was a dream, but I couldn’t sleep,” she said.
“It was like I had a terrible nightmare.”
When she awoke the next morning, she was in shock.
The baby had died of complications from the Zika virus.
It was a rare complication in the Zika epidemic that has killed more than 1,000 people in the Americas.
The Canadian health minister, Yasir Naqvi, was quick to call the baby’s death “tragic and incomprehensible”.
“It’s just unimaginable,” Ms Persis said.
The Zika virus is transmitted by mosquitoes and, unlike other viruses, it is not transmitted through sex.
But in recent months, the virus has become more prevalent in Brazil, where the country has seen an unprecedented rise in cases of microcephaly, or abnormally small heads.
In March, a study by the WHO found that the majority of microcephalic babies in Brazil had been born to mothers who had tested positive for Zika.
Since then, experts have speculated that the virus could have spread from mother to baby.
Some experts have also speculated that some mothers might be infected with the virus while pregnant.
Zika was detected in the mother’s blood and urine at a time when she was pregnant.
That raised concerns that the fetus might be at risk of birth defects, which can lead to microcephalic babies.
Ms Perses said her baby was in her arms when she woke up, but she was still shocked.
“That’s when I knew I had to get out of the house and call the ambulance.”
She called a relative, who brought her to the hospital.
Doctors found that she was infected with Zika, which caused a mild case of microcystitis, or inflammation of the uterus.
“The doctors thought it could have been a virus infection, but it was something else,” Ms Dias said.
Ms Dios said the doctors were not sure what caused the infection, although they had ruled out other reasons for the baby to have had the infection.
Ms Koester said she had never had an infection before, and she believed her pregnancy was normal.
“If it had been a real infection, I would have had to go into labour and I would’ve had a cesarean, which would have been very hard,” she told ABC Radio Melbourne.
She said her first concern was that the baby might not survive.
“But it’s a normal situation and we’re just glad she’s healthy,” Ms Kiester said.
Zika virus experts say it’s not just pregnant women who are at risk.
Dr Koesker, who is based at University of Adelaide, said the virus was transmitted through direct contact with the fetus, or “fetus virus”.
She said the only way to avoid the risk of microcetosis, which is a type of infection that can lead at birth to birth defects in babies, was to get a Zika test.
“This means that you have to have a blood test before you can get tested, and it’s done by a specialist,” Dr Kiesker said.
For the mother who tested positive, Ms Kios said she was glad that the results were positive.
“When I saw the news I was very upset and shocked,” Ms Kaspari said.
It took the doctor two days to get the Zika test, but after that it was all done in the hospital in two hours.
“You have to take the risk that you may have to give up the pregnancy and get an abortion,” she explained.
“Because you’re going to have to go through this, and you’ll be risking the fetus.”
Ms Kasperi said she hopes to donate her blood to raise awareness about the virus and help those who have to carry babies through it.
She hopes the results will give the world more information about Zika.
“What I can do is use it as a teaching tool and to raise funds for the research,” Ms Pias said, adding that her daughter has no medical problems.
“My daughter is a healthy baby and is doing great.
I’m glad that she’s doing well.”
Ms Kitzman said she wanted the world to know that the Zika outbreak is still unfolding and that more information was needed to know more about it.
“I think this is the beginning of the end for microcephy,” she added.
“There are so many things we need to know about the Zika pandemic, and there are so few people who are prepared to come forward and do so.”
A spokesperson for the World Health Organisation said the agency would not comment on individual cases.
The World Health Organization is not able to offer any specific advice on how to prevent microcephems, which it says can lead in a number of ways.
“We don’t have an exact number of micro
