Ya Man! Fighting Zika With Reggae Music



It’s often said that “music heals.” While it may not cure disease, some nations are turning to music in an attempt to prevent it. Jamaica’s Ministry of Health produced a reggae music video that’s about Zika, a virus that is spread through mosquito bites. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Zika is not a new virus and is rarely deadly. However, there have been reports of serious birth defects related to the disease, such as microcephaly, a medical condition in which a baby’s head is smaller than it should be. At the present time, there is no vaccine or medication for the treatment of Zika.
