Zika no longer a world health emer­gency

The Myanmar Times - - World -

The World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion an­nounced that the Zika virus out­break no longer poses a world public health emer­gency. “The Zika virus re­mains a highly sig­nif­i­cant and long-term prob­lem, but it is not any more a public heath emer­gency of in­ter­na­tional con­cern,” the world health body’s emer­gency com­mit­tee chair Dr David Hey­mann said. The agency was care­ful not to dis­miss the risk still posed by the virus.
