Geovane Silva holds his son Gustavo Henrique, who has microcephaly, at the Oswaldo Cruz Hospital in Recife, Brazil. The World Health Organisation has declared the current outbreak of the Zika virus in Latin America as a global health emergency, after a meeting of an expert panel in Geneva.Tens of thousands of Zika cases have been reported since the outbreak began in Brazil, and the virus has been linked with a dramatic spike in babies born with microcephaly, or abnormally small brains. Though symptoms are relatively minor for most victims, the virus also appears to be associated with the rare Guillain-Barré post-viral syndrome, which can lead to paralysis. It has led to recommendations pregnant women don't travel to affected regions.: photo by Reuters, 1 February 2016

Second Eye Whiteness is a terrible condition. Pretty much incurable as things stand.

Yes. Let us not dwell on the possible evolution. To compute the extent of the bloodless mechanical horror of Third Eye Whiteness is not easy... and too, computation may prove redundant, the cold hand of 3EW may be already "reaching out" to us... closing around our clayey gizzards, e'en as we croak on... "standing our ground," as the pre-sentient anti-bird patriots endlessly reiterate...
