More babies than expected affected by Zika virus

A year after Zika was declared a global emergency, doctors believe the number of babies affected could be much higher. I'm with baby Mirella Vitoria, she's 15 months old and she is one of those cases doctors are studying right now. She wasn't born with microcephaly but later on she showed signs that she too was affected by the Zika virus in her mother's womb. Doctor Ricardo Ximenez is one of the scientists looking into this. They call it congenital Zika syndrome. Even if these babies are born with the normal-sized head, they can have poor vision, hearing loss and other disabilities later in their lives. Research shows that for every baby with microcephaly, ten others might develop these problems.
