Zika Virus

Zika is a single-stranded RNA flavivirus, a member of the Flaviviridae family. The virus is genetically linked to some others responsible for encephalitis in humans, including chikungunya, dengue, West Nile, and the yellow fever virus. It is one of the arboviruses transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. The main vectors are Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. It causes severe haemorrhagic fever with high mortality rates in humans. As the virus spreads through the body, it damages the immune system and organs. Eventually, it causes levels of blood-clotting cells to drop. This leads to severe, uncontrollable bleeding.
