No, it happens to everyone, but pregnant women who are infected can pass the virus to the foetus. It is suspected that foetus' infected by the virus will be born with malformations.

Zika is thought to cause microcephaly when it infects pregnant women, a rare condition that causes infants to develop abnormally small heads and incomplete brains.
So, in some areas where there is a lot of Zika virus, the authorities are advising women not to get pregnant for the moment because there is a higher than usual chance of having a malformed baby.

Is it the way to control population increasing ?

There is a better way,,, Tell all girls to keep their legs crossed.

Ah ha. Excellent conspiracy theory LS : Zika as a means of birth control. It has deliberately been introduced to prevent poor people from having too many babies. %)

Zika virus also caused birth defects. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director, US, Dr. Tom Frieden has now clearly said that there's no longer any doubt that the Zika virus causes birth defects. The evidence has been piling up and there really had not been any doubt that Zika was causing horrific brain damage to unborn babies. And now CDC officials made it public, in a publication which appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine.

"It is now clear, Zika does cause microcephaly," Dr.Frieden told reporters in a briefing thereafter. "We believe the microcephaly is likely to be part of a range of birth defects". “Never before in history has there been a situation where a bite from a mosquito can result in a devastating malformation,” Dr. Frieden said. "Reducing exposure to mosquitoes for everyone where the virus is circulating is important", he insisted.

Many mosquitoes that carry dangerous diseases only fly 100 meters from the place they emerge as adults; thus eradication is very simple with education and civil enforcement as has been demonstrated in Malaysia, Thailand, and Australia in mitigation of recurrent seasonal dengue outbreaks.
Its ok they have already eliminated the biggest water receptacle :D

So much bollocks with the news. I was in the Zika forest near Entebbe, Uganda a few weeks ago. I was at a wedding reception 500 metres from the forest. The Zika virus was identified there about 60 years ago. The forest has about ten different mosquito varieties and scientists have been going here for decades to study mosquitoes.

Malaysia expects more Zika cases as virus spreads through Southeast Asia
04 Sep 2016 at 08:23 ET

Malaysia is bracing for more Zika cases, officials said on Sunday, after detecting the first locally infected patient, which could further stretch a health system struggling with dengue, another mosquito-borne virus that can be fatal...

Malaysia recorded a total of 120,836 dengue cases last year, including 336 fatalities – the most since 1995, according to government data. This year, there have been 75,000 dengue cases and 166 fatalities.

Malaysian authorities say dengue is a bigger problem than Zika.

But regional health experts believe Zika is significantly under-reported in Southeast Asia as authorities fail to conduct adequate screening and also because of its usually mild symptoms.

The WHO lists Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam as countries with “possible endemic transmission or evidence of local mosquito-borne Zika infections in 2016”...
