Recently Dr. Cortes did an interview with NoticiasR7. There are many individuals that are suffering from symptoms of either the Dengue virus or Zika. For such individuals, it may be difficult to know the difference between these symptoms. Apart from Dengue and Zika, Chikungunya is another disease that many individuals in Central, South and South America are suffering from. When it comes to the Dengue disease, many of the symptoms are muscular and there is pain between the eyes.
When it comes to the Zika virus, it is a virus that causes itching and red eyes; researchers are still investigating the disease. As far as Dengue goes, it is a hemorrhagic disease and bleeding is a very well-known symptom of Dengue fever. When it comes to both diseases, if a person experiences any symptoms that they think may be tide to Zika, then they need to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
According to Dr. Cortes, there are many new studies that are being done in order to see if it is possible for people to have more than one virus at the same time. The one thing that is sure is that there are no antiviral medications that can cure the disease or prevent the disease from coming on. Dr. Cortes also mentioned that they are studying different treatment options for the disease as well. For the present moment, the only treatments that are possible for those individuals that are suffering from either one of those diseases are hydration through an IV line and rest. Scientists are hopeful that there will be antiviral drugs that will be approved by the National Health surveillance Agency. The vaccine that was developed for Zika has proven 80% effective in the fight against the different types of diseases, and this could greatly help with the elimination and the prevention of the diseases that are brought on by mosquitoes.
