The American Medical Association has created an online Zika Virus Resource Center as a clearinghouse for information from the CDC, other respected health organizations, and The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
These resources are intended to support physicians to:
· Educate medical teams and inform patients about the risks and symptoms of the Zika virus;
· Detect the Zika virus;
· Treat the symptoms and effects of the virus;
· Remain up-to-date about this infection; and
· Communicate clearly and factually with patients, their families, and the media about exposure risks and potential preventive measures, particularly as new evidence becomes available.
