Zika Linked to Hearing Loss, Study Says

Zika Linked to Hearing Loss Study Says

Add hearing loss to the list of health problems that could be caused by the Zika virus.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the study Tuesday, saying that out of nearly 70 children infected with the virus, four had hearing loss that appeared to be unconnected with any other health issue.

This, the researchers say, could mean the hearing problems stem from Zika as the issue appears to be caused by damage to the nerve that links the ear with the brain.
