Zika Virus

Zika infection is an individual from the Flaviviridae family and is transmitted to people by mosquitoes. It is identified with other pathogenic vector borne flaviviruses including dengue, West-Nile and Japanese encephalitis infections. Since 2007 Zika infection has brought on a few flare-ups in the Pacific, and since 2015 it further spread in the Americas. While there is no particular treatment, paracetamol (acetaminophen) and rest may help with the symptoms. The illness cannot be cured by medications or vaccines. Zika can also spread from a pregnant woman to her fetus. This can result in severe brain malformations, and other birth defects.
