First Zika-related microcephaly birth in US mainland

June 1, 2016

A baby with microcephaly was born in New Jersey, USA on Tuesday.

This is the first case in US mainland and only the third case on US territory. In January a baby was born in Hawaii from a woman that had been living in Brazil. In May, Puerto Rico officials confirmed a similar case, which however was linked to local transmission of the virus.

However, this is the beginning. There are now 300 pregnant infected women in the US.
