China Daily (USA) - - WORLD -

Re­searchers have found more ev­i­dence link­ing the mos­quito-borne Zika virus to a neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­or­der known as Guil­lain-Barre syndrome, but proof of cause­and-ef­fect re­mains elu­sive, a study said onWed­nes­day. The find­ings in the New Eng­land Jour­nal ofMedicine were based on re­search at six dif­fer­ent hos­pi­tals in Colom­bia, in­volv­ing 68 peo­ple with Guil­lain-Barre syndrome, most of whom had pre­vi­ous symp­toms of Zika in­fec­tion in­clud­ing rash, fever, headache and red eyes.
