    The Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality has risen to 23 diagnosed cases of the virus in Spain zika , all imported, including two pregnant women, who are under medical supervision are.

    Eight of the cases are diagnosed in Catalonia, including two pregnant women ; five in Madrid; three Castilla y León; two Aragon; two Asturias; and one in Andalusia, as in Murcia and Navarre.

    Indicated by the Ministry on its website, once the cases have been confirmed at the National Microbiology Center of the Institute of Health Carlos III. All of them have been infected after visiting affected countries . Health recalled that before the epidemic zika in several countries of the American continent, the Ministry, in collaboration with the Carlos III Health Institute and the autonomous communities, has established a surveillance of imported cases of the disease this virus.

    Biweekly ultrasounds

    Pregnant women who have been confirmed to them that are infected with virus zika will undergo serial ultrasounds to monitor the growth and "especially" fetal morphology every two weeks. So what sets the protocol agreed by the Ministry of Health and the regions with the Spanish Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (SEGO), in order to 'normalize' the recommendations and treatment to pregnant women with suspected or confirmed diagnosis of zika.

    The protocol was not approved last week in the Committee on Public Health, bringing together communities and Ministry week, in which the green light was given, among other things, the protocol to deal with the virus, because the meeting was held out and did not give time to address all the issues specified in the agenda, pinpointed Ministry sources told Efe.

    Thus, the Public Health Commission has reconvened on Monday, this time by videoconference, and adopted the protocol for pregnant women. Health reported in a statement that for the monitoring of pregnant women with zika is "essential" contest advanced obstetricians in prenatal ultrasound diagnosis and the suspected diagnosis of fetal infection.

    Before a newborn with clear signs of maternal infection with the virus, the protocol recommends carrying out serology and neutralization cord blood , histopathological examination of the placenta and umbilical and PCR cord (polymerase chain reaction) of the virus in frozen placental tissue and umbilical cord.

    The protocol stresses that there is no evidence to suggest that pregnant women are a population more susceptible to infection with the Zika virus, or it is revealed more virulent during pregnancy.

    However, continues the statement, pregnant women and women who intend to become pregnant are "the main risk group" in relation to this virus, the observed increase in cases of microcephaly and other malformations in babies of infected women, "suggests a possible association being investigated."

    For pregnant women with symptoms compatible zika after visiting high-risk areas, the protocol states that they take samples of blood and urine for the presence of virus by PCR or serology and neutralizing antibodies. In patients with symptoms from endemic areas for dengue or chikungunya it should also rule out infection by these viruses.

    In addition, the finding of microcephaly and intracranial calcification in the fetus of a woman who has returned from risk areas, the protocol reflects the need for studies to rule out the virus. In the case of asymptomatic pregnant women from these areas and in the absence of these defects "would not specify rule out infection."

    Finally, the protocol maintains the recommendations to pregnant women to postpone their trips to endemic areas if they are not essential and if not possible, use extreme precautions to avoid mosquito bites by using repellents indicated, clothes that cover skin and mosquito nets.

              The Galician Ministry of Health has activated the protocol against the first birth of a pregnant with Zika in Spain . The woman, who had contracted the infection in Venezuela in the second trimester of pregnancy, gave birth last February early. The mother has been discharged but her son remains hospitalized for reasons "unrelated to Zika" , as confirmed from the Ministry.

              In Spain there are 38 diagnosed cases of Zika virus, all imported, among which are four pregnant women and women who have given birth in Galicia, in different regions.

              It was late February at the Hospital of Santiago where a woman who was 30 weeks gestation gave birth to a child who is currently hospitalized for reasons other than Zika, as confirmed from the Hospital de Santiago itself and from the Ministry of Health.

              For this reason, it has decided to activate a protocol , as determined by the Ministry of Health, which is conducting a series of tests at birth. As has confirmed WORLD Xurxo Hervada, General Deputy Director of Health Information and Epidemiology Galician Health Service , was the obstetrician himself who gave the alarm after analyzing the medical records of women and prove that he spent a Zika suspect episode in a visit to Venezuela.

              Given the possible suspect Zika, when she gave birth samples of both cord blood, and the mother and the newborn were collected. "I do not know if placental samples were taken [as specified in the protocol ], because this was a couple of weeks ago and still was not well established protocol, I suspect not taken ".

              These analyzes that were sent to the National Center for Microbiology in Madrid, confirmed that the woman had been infected during his visit to Venezuela by the Zika virus. As to whether the small also was infected through the mother, Hervada notes that " is not yet known if the baby had infection Zika. We have not gotten the results of analyzes, although taken at the same time carried out the analysis of the mother. I guess we are about to receive, but this depends on the National Center for Microbiology "he says.

              The action against the newborn varies depending on the damages and involvement evidencing that the virus has caused. " The child is doing well and so far, no sequel linked to infection Zika is not objective . It is admitted to the neonatal unit waiting to take weight because he was born with low birth weight. However, if it is confirmed the infection, do not think much will change medical action, if long - term monitoring because it would be more intense , "explains Hervada.

              The Ministry of Health, which oversees the National Microbiology Center, says that "tests to detect the virus Zika require more time can be up to three weeks" and confirms that this woman was the fifth pregnant with Zika in Spain , by which currently there are four pregnant women who have been having contracted infection in a country where the mosquito that transmits the virus is present. .

                              This is the first assessment of data provided by the Department of Alfonso Alonso after last Thursday Catalonia, the region with more cases, notify the first case of fetal microcephaly by infection Zika virus in Spain on a pregnant woman, the second in Europe

                              To the epidemic by Zika virus in the Region of the Americas, the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, in collaboration with the Carlos III Institute of Health and autonomous regions, it has established a surveillance of imported cases of disease by Zika virus.

                              Among other issues, it is recommended to anyone who has been to any area where there is a virus postpone 28 days from returning the unprotected sex with women who are pregnant or intend to be, to avoid possible contagion through semen and given the potential risk of fetal microcephaly that has not yet been confirmed.

                              Pregnant women who have traveled to countries at risk by Zika virus will undergo blood and urine if returning to Spain presented any symptoms indicative of infection, according to the protocol agreed to follow up with the Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (SEGO ).

                              And if confirmed the presence of the virus, serial ultrasound examinations will be made to control the growth and, especially, fetal morphology every two weeks, the contest advanced obstetricians in prenatal ultrasound diagnosis and the suspected diagnosis of fetal infection being essential .
