Scientists identify Zika's path to infecting the fetus -
UPI reports: "Throughout South America, the Zika virus has so far caused thousands of cases of devastating birth defects, most often microcephaly -- babies born with a smaller-than-normal head and underdeveloped brains. So far, only a few such cases have occurred in the United States, but infections are a concern as the summer mosquito season nears."

Comment: The really interesting bit in this news report is how they are worried that the upcoming summer season will mean a resurgence of Zika infections.  I'm not sure people really have this on their radar yet.
