Dr. Sergio Cortes Addresses The Zika Virus Spread


Although the Zika virus is just hitting the news now, it first appeared in the 40’s according to the official blog of Dr. Sergio Cortes. It was first diagnosed in countries in Africa such as Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Uganda. The virus slowly spread over the years into Asia into countries such as Thailand and India but it was not until 2015 that it began to make rounds in Latin America. Its presence in countries such as Colombia, Mexico, and Brazil has become so large that the World Health Organization has been forced to call it a health emergency due to its potential complications.

The major concern over the Zika virus started in April and since then the number of people affected has risen substantially. Dr. Sergio Cortes, stated that most of the time the virus does not cause serious symptoms and therefore it can be controlled, but the issue that is of high concern is pregnant women that catch the virus.

Dr. Sergio Cortes is a medical expert with a vast amount of time spent in the medical field. A quick look at his LinkedIn profile reveals that he has served as the State Health Secretary of Rio de Janeiro and worked as the Chairman of the National Instituted of Traumatology and Orthopedics. Currently he is working as the Chief Medical Officer Executive Director.

Dr. Cortes recognizes the danger of the Zika virus explaining that Guillian-Barre syndrome is a vey severe neurological disease and microcephaly and the Zika virus has already been confirmed by the Brazilian Ministry of Health in August.

To help people understand the dangers of the Zika virus Dr. Cortes breaks down the sudden health alarm into different issues on his blog. He first states that it is not contagious, but is instead contracted through the bite of a mosquito. Therefore, it is safe to be by others that have the disease becase they cannot pass it on to others.

The problem is that the mosquito that carries the Zika virus will lay her eggs in clean water in almost any location making it possible for the mosquito to pop up anywhere.

The Success of Helane L. Morrison

Recently in the news, enforcement actions have been filed against several compliance officers who have been found to be personally liable for the mistakes that have been found within their firms. Currently, New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo wants to compliance officers to receive criminal charges against them. It has been found that filing for accountability has driven those who hold experience to be more cautious in their jobs to oversee anti-money laundering and financial crimes.

Compliance officers have become popular to hire among large organizations such as JP Morgan. Compliance officers are often hired for the purpose of handling internal issues. Just last April, it was reported that JP Morgan added on over 8,000 compliance officers to the payroll.

With the demand for qualified people, increasing, the demand for compliance officers is also increasing. For example, the chief compliance officer at certain firms can earn up to $2 million on an annual basis. Even those who are specialized in anti-money laundering can earn a hefty salary of over $600,000 each year.

With the salaries and the demand for compliance officers going up, it is now important for high ranking officials of the firms to note whether or not they are truly making a contribution. An example of a misconduct took place in 2015 when a chief compliance officer at Black Rock Advisers, failed to report a conflict of interest that involved one of the chief executives.

With this conflict, it is now becoming a rule on behalf of New York’s Department of Financial Service that there will be regulations that will be conducted for the compliance officers. The compliance officers are required to now monitor suspicious transactions that violate the US economic sanctions.

With that in mind, one of the most exceptional compliance officers is Helane L. Morrison who has been a role model for other compliance officers. In 2007, Ms. Morrison joined Hall Capital. Her knowledge as a compliance officer has expanded due to her several degrees of education which include a law degree as well as degree in journalism. Ms. Morrison has experience in both the public as well as the private practice which makes her malleable to both sides of the spectrum.

Ms. Morrison is a current member of the Board of the Regional Parks Foundation and is even an active member of the Hedge Fund Subcommittee of the American Bar Association. She also served as Regional Director for the SEC until she left for her current position at Hall Capital.
