The quick spread of the Zika Virus has forced the OMS to declare a global health emergency.


In Venezuela, which is suffering from an ongoing economic crisis which has lead to severe medication shortages, the crisis may be particularly fatal- as doctors struggle to combat infections and its potentially fatal complications like Guillaum-Barre syndrome without the necessary medications and facilities.
