ZIKA VIRUS
How is Zika virus transmitted?
Zika virus is primarily transmitted through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito, not by the casual contact with an infected person.
We also continue to receive case reports of transmission through blood transfusion and sexual contact.

Joint pain
Muscle pain
Red eyes

Symptoms typically begin 2 to 14 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito.
Symptoms are usually mild (approximately 80 percent of cases show no symptom) and last for 2 to 7 days.

Babies with microcephaly* have been reported among mothers infected with Zika virus during pregnancy.
*a condition in which a baby’s head is smaller than expected when compared to babies of the same age and sex
