Know The Facts. Find the most up-to-date information on the Zika virus and how you can protect yourself and your loved ones. Zika virus may be passed from a mother to her unborn baby. The virus may also be passed from one person to another through sex.

This includes oral, anal, or vaginal sex with a man or woman. You may be at risk for Zika virus if you travel or live in an area with infected mosquitos. Mosquitoes are usually found near water. Zika is a flavivirus related to the viruses behind yellow fever, dengue, West Nile and Japanese encephalitis.

It’s named after Zika Forest in Uganda, where. What you need to know about the Zika virus How a bloodsucker transmits the Zika virus The Aedes aegypti mosquito is the perfect vector for spreading the virus. It picks up the virus from a huma. Zika virus is spread to people through the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito and can also be transmitted through blood.

Possible cases of spread through sexual transmissions are still being investigated. If you show symptoms or are diagnosed with Zika, help prevent others in your family from getting sick by avoiding mosquito bites. Zika has not been widely examined, and while some early research noted that the virus could infect brain cells, the connection between Zika and microcephaly—a severe neurological birth defect—is.

The Zika virus is a virus that is spread primarily through the Ae. aegypti and Ae. Albopictus species of mosquitos. These are the same species that spread the dengue and chikungunya viruses. Mosquitos contract the infection when they bite an infected person. A: Zika virus is spread through the bite of an infected Aedes genus of mosquitoes, which is the same type of mosquito that carries dengue fever and chikungunya.

Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which live predominantly in tropical and sub-tropical regions, are the primary carriers, but Aedes albopictus mosquitoes might also transmit the virus. What everyone needs to know about Zika virus. Symptoms, Testing, & Treatment The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, headache, joint pain, red eyes, and muscle pain.

List of related literature:

All travelers to areas with Zika virus transmission should take steps to avoid mosquito bites to prevent the risk of Zika virus and other vectorborne infections (see Chapter 3, Mosquitoes, Ticks & Other Arthropods).

  • This lady looks like zika baby!
    But zika dont exist. its the poison against mosquitos they pray all about. This fungizid or herbizid i dont know exactly, demages and kills the childhood of mosquitos. And it will do the same with our kids.
    Wake up and get smart. Dont get more and more stupid!

  • I think it is a weird coincidence that the name of the mosquito is AEDES; no cure or vaccine is one letter short of being HADES which is in greek mythology hell……….just something to ponder……..

  • There are some people who believe this may not be caused by mosquitos at all but by the chemicals treating the mosquitos. Is there any evidence to validate this question?

  • A series of straw men, what a joke. Gregory Polland should disclose his close ties with big pharma, and all the funding he gets from them.

    The real problem for big pharma is that there is lots of money to be made by promoting a Zika virus scare: $billions for research, then more billions from a vaccine.

    The real problem is that there is no particular evidence that Zika is harmful.

    First we can’t test for it easily: “There is no widely available test for Zika infection. Because it is closely related to dengue and yellow fever, it may cross-react with antibody tests for those viruses. To detect Zika, a blood or tissue sample from the first week in the infection must be sent to an advanced laboratory so the virus can be detected through sophisticated molecular testing.” Donald G. McNeil Jr., Catherine Saint Louis and Nicholas St. Fleu, The New York Times via https://marcocaceres.wordpress.com/2016/01/29/zika-epidemic-really/

    The Brazillians can’t find any causal link with Zika and brain disorders. http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/2016/04/brazilian-study-unable-to-determine-causal-link-between-zika-and-brain-disorders/

    Then there are all the other possibilities for why Brazil is seeing microencephaly, such as high levels of toxic pesticides, mandated DTaP for pregnant women, or maybe it didn’t even stand up that they have a problem at all on closer study… http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/2016/02/the-zika-microcephaly-theorys-got-big-problems/

  • It’s all over Internet that there’s a connection between Zika virus & Monsanto, that it’s not the mosquito itself who provokes the disease but the harmful chemicals produced by Monsanto to kill those mosquitoes, it was spread in the water in certain regions of northeast of Brazil and those women drink the water. Same thing in other countries

  • and here I thought you might mention the million+ GMO mosquitoes released years ago in Brazil into our once natural world, yet somehow I really didn’t expect it….i’m sure it’s preferred that the few people who actually paid attention to that news, just forget all about it. Oh good news..lol, more are being released again:((

  • A two-pronged depopulation move. First scare people so they stop procreating, then poison them with insecticide. What a wonderful world.

  • So… would it be a huge hit for the environment if mosquitos would vanish? If no, why don’t we kill them all via an artificial virus. I mean malaria, zika and a lot of other diseases could be practically annihilated…
