BRASILIA Cheap Luca Sbisa Jersey , Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- The economic impact on Latin America of the Zika virus has been estimated to reach 18 billion U.S. dollars from 2015 to 2017, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) said here on Tuesday.
"Zika is responsible for tangible losses to gross domestic product, estimated to range from 7 billion to 18 billion U.S. dollars over 2015-2017 alone," according to a UNDP study.
The report Cheap Oscar Dansk Jersey , "A Socio-economic Impact Assessment of the Zika Virus in Latin America and the Caribbean," focuses on three of the countries worst hit by the mosquito-borne virus, Brazil, Colombia and Suriname.
Those losses impose "an immediate burden on health care and social welfare systems Cheap Oscar Lindberg Jersey ," but "more long-term, could undermine decades of hard-earned health gains and social development progress," the study warns.
The UNDP report calls on countries to offset the adverse impact of the virus by investing more "in prevention, preparedness and response strategies at the local Cheap Cody Eakin Jersey , national and regional levels."
Also, Zika is bound to have a greater impact on the region's more fragile economies, the agency said.
"While larger economies, such as Brazil Cheap Reilly Smith Jersey , are expected to bear the greatest share of the absolute cost, the severest impacts will be felt in the poorest countries," the report said.
The mosquito-borne virus has been linked to birth defects, with the number of infants born with microcephaly, or abnormally small heads Cheap Colin Miller Jersey , skyrocketing in Brazil following the Zika outbreak.

COLOMBO， March 15 (Xinhua) -- Sri Lanka on Wednesday reiterated that it would not allow the establishment of a hybrid court to probe allegations of human rights abuses and war crimes just weeks after the UN urged the island country to set up special hybrid courts to try war criminals.
Deputy Minister of Power and Energy， Ajith Perera， addressing the weekly cabinet media briefing here， said that Sri Lanka was capable of handling its domestic issues and the government had faith in the country's judiciary.
"Our judiciary is very strong and we are capable of solving our own issues. The President， Prime Minister and government has made it very clear that we will not allow any foreign judges or lawyers to be a part of any probe，" Perera said.
In a 17 page report to be published on March 22， UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein noted that Sri Lanka should adopt legislation establishing the hybrid court， which should include international judges， defence lawyers， prosecutors and investigators， to investigate allegations of violations and abuses of international human rights law and violations of international humanitarian law， and provide it with the resources necessary to enable it to try those responsible promptly and effectively.
The UN described Sri Lanka's progress in addressing the allegations as "worryingly slow".
In its latest report， it said abuses including torture remained widespread， with "a prevailing culture of impunity" partly to blame.
The UN said coalition politics in the unity government formed after ousting former leader Mahinda Rajapakse were likely to blame for the slow pace of progress.
As many as 40，000 minority Tamil civilians are alleged to have been killed in final months of battle between government troops and Tamil Tiger rebels. Sri Lanka's 30 year civil conflict ended with the defeat of the rebels in May 2009.
More than 100，000 people are believed to have been killed during years of conflict.
