The latest estimates by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show the Zika virus has now spread to at least 29 countries, and the WHO estimates 3 million to 4 million people across the Americas will be infected with the virus in the next year. 
 
This virus is making news not because of its symptoms, which are relatively mild, but its proposed connection to a serious birth defect of the brain called microcephaly (a condition in which a baby's head is smaller than expected when compared to babies of the same sex and age) in babies of mothers who were infected with the Zika virus while pregnant.
 
Make sure your group health insurance policy covers Zika and other viruses. With Clements' comprehensive international health insurance coverage, you will be protected if contracting the virus while abroad, including through sexual contact.  
 
If you don't have a health insurance policy that protects your international lifestyle, check out Clements Globalcare with access to one of the largest networks of medical providers worldwide.
