The Zika virus has continued to get worse. A global health emergency has been declared by the World Health Organization following increased reports of the Zika virus. The virus has been linked to multiple birth defects including microcephaly, where babies are born with unusually small heads.
As the Zika virus spreads from Brazil through the Americas, with no vaccines or treatments yet available for Zika, there are some companies that are looking for some way to stop the Zika virus as they are developing treatments, vaccines or other products tied to the mosquito-borne disease.
With the Zika virus outbreak there are some traders and investors wondering if there are some Zika virus stocks out there that have the potential to see some big gains if the Zika virus continues to get worse.
