Clinical information

An infection with the Zika virus is primarily transmitted through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes. The virus was first identified in the Zika Forest of Uganda in 1947 and remained relatively unknown until outbreaks occurred in various countries in 2015-2016. The symptoms of Zika infection are usually mild and include fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis.
However, the virus can also cause more severe complications, such as microcephaly in babies born to infected mothers and Guillain-Barré syndrome in some individuals. Zika can also be transmitted through sexual contact and from mother to child during pregnancy.
There is currently no specific treatment or vaccine for Zika, so prevention through mosquito control and protection against mosquito bites is crucial.
