The CDC issued an alert for travel to areas where Zika virus was spreading back in 2017. Based on how the virus is spread, what body defenses, if any, are there? What can people do to decrease the chance of contracting Zika?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Zika is a virus that’s mostly spread to people by a bite from an infected Aedes Mosquito. However, this virus can also spread through sex and to a fetus during pregnancy. Not all mosquitoes transmit this virus primarily aedes (aegypti and albopictus). They can also spread through a virus called dengue and chikungunya. These mosquitoes can be found in many areas in the continental United States. In some cases some people who are infected by Zika can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. In fact, some symptoms may include: fever, joint pain, muscle pain, mild headaches, skin rash and conjunctivitis which may last about a week. On the other hand, if a mom passes Zika to her newborn this can cause severe brain defect called

microcephally; incomplete brain development. This can lead to dwarfism, seizures, delayed speech & movements.
The best way to protect yourself from mosquito bites is by using insect repellent spray, lotion or cream or covering your limbs by wearing long sleeve shirts and pants. Unfortunately, there are no vaccines or treatments for this virus. Although, drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration and Tylenol to reduce minor muscle/joint pain and fever.
