«The Zika virus and related neurological complications in newborn children no longer constitute an international emergency». It has been declared by the doctor David Heymann, the president of the WHO emergency committee on Zika. Since 2015, the virus has been spread by mosquitoes and through sex in 73 countries and 23 of them have observed many cases of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré disorder.

Now two anti-Zika vaccines are being evaluated according to the WHO, and the clinical tests results are being examined.
