The Zika Virus

January 20, 2016

As of January 15, 2016, local transmission of Zika virus has been identified in at least 14 countries in Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and Mexico. At this moment, local transmission of Zika virus has not been documented in the continental United States. However, Zika virus infections have been reported in travelers returning to the United States from these impacted countries – these imported cases may result in local spread of the virus. Zika virus infections should be considered in patients with acute onset of fever, maculopapular rash, arthralgia or conjunctivitis, who traveled to these affected areas with ongoing transmission in the two weeks prior to experiencing symptoms.
