Zika virus: what you need to know        Video        Guardian Explainers        The Guardian        28 January 2016

 

A rare tropical virus

has been spreading rapidly through Latin America

prompting health officials to warn pregnant women

of the risks to their babies.

 

The virus has been linked

by some officials in Brazil

to surging cases of microcephaly

- a brain defect that leads

to reduced head size in infants.

 

However, the virus itself is not thought to be fatal

and often comes with no symptoms at all.

Zika virus disease

 

Zika virus disease

is caused by a virus transmitted primarily

by Aedes mosquitoes,

which bite during the day.

 

Symptoms are generally mild

and include fever, rash, conjunctivitis,

muscle and joint pain, malaise or headache.

 

Symptoms typically last for 2–7 days.

 

Most people with Zika virus infection

do not develop symptoms.

 

Zika virus infection during pregnancy

can cause infants to be born with microcephaly

and other congenital malformations,

known as congenital Zika syndrome.

 

Infection with Zika virus is also associated

with other complications of pregnancy

including preterm birth and miscarriage.

 

An increased risk

of neurologic complications

is associated with Zika virus infection

in adults and children,

including Guillain-Barré syndrome,

neuropathy and myelitis.
