The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today deactivated its emergency operations center for Zika virus. “Since the 2016 EOC activation for Zika, experts from across the agency have worked to protect Americans, especially pregnant women, fetuses and infants, from the emerging virus and its devastating consequences,” the agency said. “CDC will continue its work to protect these groups by providing support for health care providers as they counsel pregnant women affected by Zika and provide follow-up care to their infants. CDC recognizes the continued need for coordination among federal, state and local levels to provide services for families affected by Zika and will provide technical assistance as resources permit.”
