Solange Ferreira bathes her son Jose Wesley, who was born with microcephaly, at their house in Poco Fundo, Pernambuco state, Brazil. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016, that it has found the strongest evidence so far of a possible link between a mosquito-borne virus and a surge of birth defects in Brazil.

In the past year, Zika virus has emerged as a serious health risk, linked to severe birth defects in Brazil. NPR's South America Correspondent Lourdes Garcia-Navarro and Global Health Correspondent Jason Beaubien will answer your questions on this mosquito-borne disease in a live YouTube web stream on Tuesday, January 26 at 11 a.m. ET.

This past week, Garcia-Navarro reported on one of the mothers who herself had Zika virus and whose baby was born with microcephaly. Beaubien talked to specialists for a report on what we do and don't yet know about the disease.

Submit your question in a comment below or tweet them to us using the hashtag #ZikaQA. We'll consider these questions for our correspondents to answer in real time.

The video above will be blank until the start of the event.
