FIRST NYC CASE OF MICROCEPHALY - The first New York City case of Zika-related microcephaly was reported Friday by the city's health department. The news was somewhat expected given the thousands of pregnant women who have traveled to Zika-affected countries over the last several months. Earlier this week, while speaking to numerous reporters who represent ethnic media outlets, city health commissioner Mary Bassett said it was only a matter of time before the city saw its first case of microcephaly, a devastating deformity in which a baby is born with a small head and can have brain damage. "While not surprising, given the travel trends of our global city, this case is a strong reminder of the tragic consequences of the Zika virus," Bassett said in a statement. http://politico.pro/29YBKaM
