Zika360 Provides Online Info On Virus Concerns, Issues


A new online resource monitors all things Zika  

A new informational hub for online information on the Zika virus outbreak has been launched by the Texas A&M Health Science Center and is available on the Texas A&M International University website, tamiu.edu.

Dubbed Zika360, the resource site customizes information from the Centers from Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and Texas A&M University System experts in epidemiology, maternal health, neurology, public health preparedness and mosquito-borne infectious diseases to help explain the virus, track its spread and put fears in context.

As the site creators observe, “The Zika virus is considered a global health emergency and The Texas A&M University System has marshaled its resources to sift through the clutter and provide answers to the most asked Zika questions.  We have a pulse on the latest, breaking Zika news around the globe and synthesize it in an easy to digest format.  We look at Zika from every angle – a 360-degree view, to provide the most needed information.”

The daily resource provides for the most up-to-date/breaking information on the virus. The site features  Q&A with TAMUS experts, as well as downloadable resources  that includes infographics, support visuals, fact sheets and web/social ads.
