Important Information on Zika Virus
Zika is a virus transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito. Spread of the virus has also been reported through blood transfusion and sexual contact. It is possible the Zika virus can be passed from a mother to her baby during pregnancy and linked to a specific birth defect called microcephaly.
The incubation period (time from exposure to symptoms) of Zika virus disease is not clear, but is likely to be a few days. The most common symptoms of Zika virus disease are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon. Currently there is no vaccine to prevent or medication to treat Zika. Treatment for symptoms of Zika is rest, fluids, and medication such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) to relieve fever and pain. Do not take aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen).
To date, no locally transmitted Zika cases have been reported in the continental United States, but cases have been reported in returning travelers from countries and territories with active Zika virus transmission. Women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant are advised to postpone travel to areas with Zika virus transmission. Travelers can limit their exposure to Zika and other mosquito-borne illnesses by taking precautions to prevent mosquito bites.
