Among other symptoms can be fever runny nose, red eyes, joint pains. Their intensity is usually low, to the point where they are not noticeable

  2. During pregnancy, if an immunity to the virus is not found in prenatal screening, Toxo IgM/IgG antibodies are tested for possible infection during pregnancy
