Prevent the Zika Virus with these medical supplies

Given the current status of the Zika Virus in different regions of the world, Discount Medical Supplies would like to make a brief Public Service Announcement for all our customers.

The Zika Virus is a growing concern in popular areas in the tropics and popular vacation spots for the upcoming Spring Break season. This condition is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito bites, but also it can be sexually transmitted. The Zika virus can produce a fever, rash, joint pain and even conjunctivitis as mild symptoms, as well as muscle pain and headaches. In some rare and severe cases, the Zika virus could be deadly.

Another worrying result of the Zika virus is that if a pregnant woman is infected with this virus it could potentially lead to complications during gestation, and their babies could develop microcephaly (their head is much smaller that normal).

However, you can still travel to areas that have been reported to be affected by the Zika virus, and be safe. You can protect yourself from mosquito bites with insect repellent (such as this) and by practicing safe sex (click here to see your options).

The best way to fight the Zika Virus is by prevention. And remember, by taking care of yourself, you will be taking care of others.
