Zika can hurt the heads and brains of babies.
It can also lead to paralysis adults.
Molly Riehl talked about the link between Zika and Guillain Barre Syndrome, an unpredictable neurological disorder, recently for a segment aired on NewsBeat Health and NewsBeat Social.
One expert, Lee Norman of the U.S. Army, told her “We can’t narrowly focus our attention [on pregnant women] like a razor beam,” he said. “Zika virus is an equal opportunity virus.”
