ZIKA BABY in NJ. But really, from Honduras.

Hackensack University Medical Center:  Doctors working at the medical center in New Jersey confirmed Tuesday the birth of a child suffering from Zika-linked microcephaly, a condition wherein the child’s brain and head are partially developed.

The mother, who is 31 but whose name and legal status was not disclosed, contracted the Zika virus while in Honduras and was admitted to the emergency room at Hackensack on Friday.

She is the first child born with Zika-linked complications in the New York tri-state area.
