NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Researchers at Vanderbilt University's Vaccine Center just received antibodies from Zika Virus survivors.  On Thursday the World Health Organization announced that there are 31 confirmed cases in the United States.  Health officials believe the virus is transmitted through mosquitos and leads to severe head deformities in newborn babies. Dr. James Crowe said, “Last year in Brazil a major outbreak started and we’ve seen thousands of cases now.”
