2 California Babies Born With Zika-Related Defects
Two babies in California were born with microcephaly after their mothers were infected with Zika virus, state health officials said Thursday.
The mothers had traveled to countries with outbreaks of the illness before becoming infected. Officials would not release any more information about the women or the babies.
“This is a sobering reminder for Californians that Zika can cause serious harm to a developing fetus,” said Dr. Karen Smith, director of the California Department of Public Health.
Nationwide, 13 babies had been born with Zika-related birth defects as of July 21, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
