Doctors recently found that pregnant women could spread the Zika disease to the baby in their womb if they are infected by it. Zika virus in this way could cause microcephaly to the baby, causing him or her to have an abnormally small head with potential brain related development problems. In Brazil, where Zika virus is most rampant, infection has already reached to 1,500 babies. In New York, the first Zika related birth defect was found.
