Treating Zika cases in Brazil takes emotional toll, doctor says

It is not easy being an infectious disease doctor in Brazil right now with so many patients infected with the Zika virus, Antonio C. Bandeira, M.D., a specialist based in Salvador, said in an interview with MedScape Multispecialty. Bandeira, who has treated more than 300 patients with Zika virus in the last year, said it is emotionally draining on physicians because they do not have the answers to patients' questions. It's not known what percentage of pregnant women with Zika will deliver a microcephalic newborn. Article
