  1. Discovered in the Zika forest, Uganda, in , Zika virus is a member of the flavivirus family. Other flaviviruses include those that cause dengue, yellow fever, and West Nile fever. Like its relatives, Zika virus is primarily transmitted to humans through the bite of infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Zika virus can be transmitted from an infected pregnant woman to her baby during pregnancy.
  2. Zika fever, also known as Zika virus disease or simply Zika, is an infectious disease caused by the Zika virus. Most cases have no symptoms, but when present they are usually mild and can resemble dengue fever. Symptoms may include fever, red eyes, joint pain, headache, and a maculopapular rash. Symptoms generally last less than seven days.
  3. The history of Zika virus. The rise in the spread of Zika virus has been accompanied by a rise in cases of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome. First identified in Uganda in in monkeys, Zika was later identified in humans in The first large outbreak of disease caused by Zika infection was reported from the Island of Yap in
  4. Should I give a shit about a virus that causes a mild fever, even if I'm not planning to get pregnant? (Answer: yes).
  5. Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Zika can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus. Infection during pregnancy can cause certain birth defects.
  6. A new class of nanosensor developed in Brazil could more accurately identify dengue and Zika infections, a task that is complicated by their genetic similarities and which can result in misdiagnosis. The technique uses gold nanoparticles and can “observe” viruses at the atomic level, according to a study published in Scientific Reports (9.
  7. Zika virus (ZIKV) (pronounced / ˈ z iː k ə / or / ˈ z ɪ k ə /) is a member of the virus family Flaviviridae. It is spread by daytime-active Aedes mosquitoes, such as A. aegypti and A. albopictus. Its name comes from the Ziika Forest of Uganda, where the virus was first isolated in Zika virus is related to the dengue, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, and West Nile tangnateconozdivivotamipuloc.coinfo: Flaviviridae.
  8. No Zika virus transmission by mosquitoes has ever been reported in Alaska and Hawaii. In , there have been no confirmed Zika virus disease cases reported from United States territories. If you are traveling outside of the continental United States or its territories, please see the Zika .
