What is Zika Virus and How Does it Spread?

Zika virus is primarily spread through the bites of infected Aedes mosquitoes. These mosquitoes are found in tropical and subtropical regions around the world, and can also transmit other viral infections such as dengue and chikungunya. In rare cases, Zika virus can also be transmitted through sexual contact, blood transfusions, and from mother to child during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Zika Virus Symptoms: Recognizing the Signs of Infection

Many people infected with Zika virus may not show any symptoms, or may experience only mild symptoms such as fever, rash, joint pain, and red eyes. However, the infection can be more serious in pregnant women, as it has been linked to birth defects such as microcephaly. It's important to recognize the signs of Zika virus infection and seek medical attention if you have been in an area where the virus is prevalent and are experiencing symptoms.

Who is at Risk for Zika Virus Infection?

Anyone who lives in or travels to areas where Zika virus is prevalent is at risk for infection. This includes pregnant women, as well as people who have unprotected sex with someone who has recently traveled to an area with Zika virus transmission. People who work outdoors or spend a lot of time outdoors are also at a higher risk for mosquito bites and Zika virus infection.
