The CDC says that Doctors should ask all pregnant women whether they have traveled recently to areas affected by the Zika virus, federal health officials said.

Pregnant women showing any symptoms of infection who have been to countries where the virus is circulating should get a test to make sure they’re not infected, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

And women whose developing babies look like they may have smaller-than-normal heads or brains and who traveled in affected regions should also be tested, CDC said.
