Zika virus

Zika is a virus that is spread by mosquito bites.Zika virus is mainly transmitted by mosquitoes and may be present in any country that has the mosquitoes able to spread it.To date, the virus has been found in parts of Africa, southern Asia, the Pacific Islands, and the Americas.

Rare instances of sexual transmission (mainly male to sex partner) have also been documented.Pregnant women who become infected with Zika can transmit the disease to their unborn babies, with potentially serious consequences. Reports from several countries, including Brazil, indicate an increase in severe birth defects (microcephaly in particular) in babies whose mothers were infected while pregnant.

There are also concerns that Zika sometimes leads to Guillain-Barr; syndrome, a serious neurological disorder caused by the immune system reacting to Zika infection.Based on research to date, there is scientific consensus that Zika virus is a cause of microcephaly and other severe fetal brain abnormalities, as well as Guillain-Barr; syndrome.There is ongoing research about how Zika can affect infected people.
