Zika causes in­fer­til­ity: US study

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Wash­ing­ton: A study of mice in­fected with Zika showed the virus caused last­ing dam­age to key cells in the male re­pro­duc­tive sys­tem, re­sult­ing in shrunken tes­ti­cles, lower lev­els of sex hor­mones and re­duced fer­til­ity, Amer­i­can re­searchers said on Mon­day. Reuters num­bers have soared since the clo­sure of the Jun­gle shanty town in the north­ern port city of Calais.

The op­er­a­tion, largely con­sist­ing of iden­tity checks on some of an es­ti­mated 2500 mi­grants sleep­ing rough around a canal and rail­way bridge near Paris’s Stal­in­grad metro sta­tion, came as pres­sure mounts on the govern­ment to shut the camp. Reuters
