There has been a lot of information in the media about Zika virus and it can be confusing and worrying. We thought we'd help clarify some of the important facts about Zika virus in order for you to be informed and prepared with preventative tools to decrease the risk of contracting this virus while you are in a risk area.
Zika virus is spread by mosquitoes and causes a disease that is usually very mild with flu like symptoms and a rash. However, Zika virus can be a serious concern for pregnant women and may cause brain defects in the fetus such as microcephaly (an abnormally small brain and head).
Zika virus is transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito, an aggressive daytime biting mosquito. Transmission can also occur through sexual contact and by spread from mother to fetus during pregnancy. More than forty countries have reported cases. Travellers to the Caribbean, Oceania and Central and South America are particularly at risk. Recently a few cases have occurred in Florida.
Zika is usually mild and lasts for 5-7 days. Symptoms may include fever, headache, joint pains, rash, red eyes and muscle aches. Up to 80% of those infected have no symptoms at all. The Zika virus only rarely causes serious illness or death.
