Twitter users’ Zika questions focus on infant health, disease prevention

Twitter users’ Zika questions focus on infant health, disease prevention
August 25, 2016

Questions and concerns voiced by social media users during a recent CDC live Twitter chat on Zika virus infection often revolved around the pathogen’s virology, its consequences on infant health and guidance on how best to prevent or avoid transmissions, according to a recent text analysis.

Retweets from the CDC generally responded to many of the same topics and often included additional educational materials; however, the public health organization did not appear to respond to specific inquiries on the safety of infants and pregnant women, according to Elizabeth M. Glowacki, MA, PhD candidate at the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas, and colleagues.
