Juan Pedro, who has microcephaly and turned one-year-old on December 4, sits in a specially designed chair to keep him upright as he is kissed by his sister Jennifer Karine on December 12, 2016 in Recife, Brazil. Many children are suffering a plethora of difficulties including vision and hearing problems with doctors now labeling the overall condition as "Congenital Zika Syndrome". Authorities have recorded thousands of cases in Brazil in which the mosquito-borne Zika virus may have led to microcephaly in infants. [Photo/VCG]
