A “SILENT” virus is putting thousands of babies at risk of birth defects and childhood deaths.

We are very pleaseed about recieivng national press coverage as we are working very hard to raise awareness of CMV.

The article appeared on page 13 plus we had CMV covered in the Opinion section on page 34.  Due to licencing laws, we can't copy the article but you can read the full article online at the Express:
