William Petrie said: “The lab equipment will allow MRCU to determine in less than an hour whether or not a suspected patient tests positive for the virus. This in turn means we can immediately conduct spraying operations in the vicinity of the patient’s residence, rather than waiting for the return of results from overseas. This timing is critical as we need to disrupt the life cycle of the mosquito, which can be less than a week, in order to break the cycle of transmission. In addition, this equipment will enable us to look for presence of the virus in mosquito populations,” External link

William Petrie said: “Aedes aegypti only breeds around the home; around houses and yards,” “It does not breed in mangroves, swamps or bush; it likes fresh water. It’s a container breeder, so we are talking about buckets and drums, containers the size of a drinking water glass are favoured by Aedes aegypti. We are encouraging residents to have a look around your home twice a week, it just takes 10 minutes to go around your yard; turn up buckets, cover drums, fix your screens and drain water from plant pots and discarded tyres” External link

Michelle Kelly added: "Regardless of the cause, children with microcephaly have significant developmental delays and cognitive impairment. They will require significant support through childhood, starting with early developmental intervention services.

Amesh Adalja said: "It is still unclear the exact role that Zika may or may not be playing in microcephaly," "Important scientific and statistical work is needed to establish causality. Microcephaly has multiple causes and it will be important to rule out other known causes in cases associated with Zika virus. There is some data pointing to an increase in microcephaly prior to the arrival of Zika in Brazil. This will be important to confirm" External link
