Dr. Sergio Cortes recently assessed the current outbreak of the Zika virus and African and Asian countries. The Zika virus is rapidly spreading throughout these countries. Initially, it was spread through the bite of certain mosquitos that are native to the African and Asian environments. Now, however, the disease can also be transmitted through sexual contact. Several cases of the disease have been proven to have been transmitted through the exchange of bodily fluids during sex. The disease has been proven to cause mild symptoms such as fevers and rashes, but can also cause potentially life-altering conditions such as microcephaly and Guillain Barre syndrome. Microcephaly, a serious condition that causes abnormally small and underdeveloped brains in children, has been linked to pregnant mothers who contract the disease. Guillain Barre disease, Dr. Cortes reports, is an auto-immune disease that can have equally serious repercussions for infected patients.
To better inform readers of the nature and spread of the Zika virus, Dr. Sergio Cortes selected a few key topics that were slightly debatable because of the small amount of research that has been conducted on the subject.
While it was originally thought that the Zika virus was not contagious and could only be transmitted though an insect bite, recent research has proven that the disease can also be transmitted through sexual contact between to people. The disease is not air borne or contracted in any way other than through mosquito bites and sexual transmission. The mosquito that is responsible for transmitting the virus also is responsible for the transmission of chikungunya and dengue fever, diseases which cause fevers and joint pain. The Zika virus is slightly different, however, from dengue fever and chikungunya fever due to the fact that a mosquito who is not infected with the virus can become infected by biting a human hosts who is infected. The mosquito can then transmit the disease to other otherwise healthy humans. This strange capability causes the disease to spread even more rapidly than its counterparts normally would.
Dr. Sergio Cortes described the mosquito that transmits these diseases. The Aedes aegypti (the name of the mosquito) naturally migrates to an adequate water supply for laying eggs. This creates an opportunity for these mosquitos to make a large amount of breeding spaces. These breeding spaces, in turn, create an abundance of these mosquitos which sustains the spread of the disease.

There are many celebrity impersonators in the world today. This profession has turned into a very big business for the people who are good enough to get hired on a regular basis. Elvis is the most commonly impersonated celebrity. However, the number of Michael Jackson impersonators has risen dramatically since the singer passed away. Sergio Cortes is widely considered to be the best of the best as far as impersonating the king of pop is concerned. Cortes has come a long way since his very humble upbringing. He is now famous around the world for impersonating one of the world’s most beloved entertainers.
Contrary to popular belief, it was not the life ambition of Cortes to become a Michael Jackson impersonator. In fact, he has admitted that he did not even know people made a living impersonating celebrities until he was around 20 years old. Cortes has admitted to being a fan of Jackson’s music as a youth. However, he would never imagine in his wildest dreams that one day he and Jackson would be linked so closely. Cortes grew up in Spain. He learned English by listening to American pop music. As time went by, Cortes noticed that something very strange was happening. Cortes was slowly beginning to look like Jackson. This was as a result of the treatments Jackson was undergoing to lighten his skin. Eventually, people began to confuse Cortes for Jackson when he went out in public.
Cortes was surprised by all of the attention at first. He knew that he had been blessed with a very unique opportunity. It was now just a question of finding out the right way to take advantage of it. Cortes began to get requests to show up at various parties and public events dressed as Jackson. He did this part-time and made a very good living in the process. He eventually decided to take things to the next level and become a Michael Jackson impersonator full-time. However, he knew that simply dressing and looking like Jackson would not be enough to get people to pay top dollar to hire him. He then began to take singing and dancing lessons. He learned the complex choreography to all of Jackson’s most legendary videos. After many months of practice, Cortes began to perform concerts where he would sing and dance like Jackson. These concerts have been a huge hit and made him internationally famous.
