Brazil had identified more than 900 cases of microcephaly since the outbreak of the Zika virus in October. Many more are suspected but they're not yet officially confirmed. Scientists in Brazil say the increase in microcephaly, in which a baby is born with an abnormally small head, is linked to the mosquito-born virus.

自去年10月寨卡病毒爆发起,巴西已确认发现900多起小头畸形病例。目前,更多疑似病例还未被官方证实。小头畸形的症状为新生儿异常头小,巴西的科学家说病例的增加和前面提到的由蚊子传播的病毒有关联。

The challenge to show your waist fitting behind a piece of A4 paper has gone viral in China and further afield but now there's a fight back happening online. It's been labelled of course, unrealistic, damaging and a whole new low for viral body image challenges.
