Zika Virus – Here’s what you should know about it:

  • It causes microcephaly (where the baby’s head is drastically smaller than other babies the same age) and severe brain abnormalities in babies
  • There is no vaccine or cure for Zika
  • Symptoms often include mild fevers, rashes, conjuctivitis and joint pains
  • 80% of those infected exhibit no symptoms
  • You can get Zika from being bitten by the Aedes mosquito, same type that carries the dengue, Chikunguynya and yellow fever viruses
