On January 15, 2016, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a travel alert to highlight countries where Zika virus is prevalent. The Zika virus is spread primarily by mosquito bites but it has also been reported that it has spread through blood transfusions and by sexual contact. Generally, symptoms are mild and include fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis (red eyes), lasting several days to a a week. However, Zika is linked to a serious birth defect called microcephaly. The CDC has issued travel guidance for pregnant women and women trying to become pregnant, warning them to avoid visiting places where the virus is currently circulating.
