Although harmless to most, the mosquito borne Zika Virus is extremely harmless to pregnant women. The Zika Virus causes issues with the fetus that could lead to a baby being born with an extra small head. Right now Brazil has faced most of the threat, with over 1.5 million cases reported. But as temperatures begin to rise the mosquito will begin to fly more and more north, with cases now being reported in Mexico. In all of North and South America, Canada and Chile are the only countries where the mosquitoes that carry the virus are not present.
