Zika Grant

Zika Grant

San Bernardino, CA

This week the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors will officially accept a $140,000 grant from Public Health Foundation Enterprises, Inc. The monies will be used to enhance the Department of Public Health’s epidemiology and surveillance activities in response to the Zika virus. 

According to Trudy Raymundo, Director of the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, the funded activities will include infection detection, surveillance, and outreach. “Infection prevention and timely detection are key components to preventing Zika virus infections in San Bernardino County,” Raymundo noted in her presentation to the Board. 

The Zika illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting several days to a week after being bitten and rarely results in hospitalization or death. The most common symptoms of the disease can include fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis or pink eye. To date, all confirmed Zika cases in California were associated with international travel as were the 18 cases identified in San Bernardino as of March 31.
