The fight against the Zika virus is more organized

The Pasteur Institute, which has a unique network of institutes across the world notifies on a daily basis of its actions against the Zika virus: epidemiological studies in the affected countries and laboratory studies on genes, cells and mice. These studies aim to find diagnostic tools, to understand and check the link between virus and neurological complications and to understand the modes of transmission. This fundamental research will help discover how to protect against the virus.
