WHO says delaying pregnancy option for women in Zika areas
WASHINGTON — The World Health Organization says women who live in areas where Zika is spreading should consider delaying pregnancy, since there's no other sure way to avoid the virus' devastating birth defects.
The WHO stopped short of recommending that couples put pregnancy on hold.
"It's not saying they should delay. They should be given the information about it and offered that as an option," WHO spokeswoman Nyka Alexander said Thursday.
