Doctors, patients should know of increased risk, expert says
By Anthony Esposito and Felipe Iturrieta SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Concerns over the Zika virus have not affected ticket sales at LATAM Airlines' TAM Brazilian unit, the regional carrier said on Monday. "So far, there has been no impact on reservations at TAM ... due to the cases of Zika virus in Brazil and in other locations where the airline operates," Chile-headquartered LATAM said. The rapidly spreading Zika virus, suspected to be linked to thousands of birth defects in Brazil, appears to be discouraging some tourists from traveling to Latin America and the Caribbean.
Europe's medicines watchdog said Monday it had assembled an expert team to aid the development of drugs and vaccines against the Zika virus, feared to cause brain damage in unborn babies. The task force includes specialists in vaccine design and infectious diseases, the London-based European Medicines Agency (EMA) announced in a statement, and warned of a "widening public health crisis". "This group will be available to give advice on any scientific and regulatory matters for the research and development of medicines or vaccines against the virus," it said.
