Zika virus is spread by biting mosquitoes. It’s classical, clinical presentation is a high fever, joint pain and muscle pain, a head ache, a characteristic rash and in some cases some nausea and vomiting. It’s not normally life-threatening although there have been a handful of cases where people are thought to have died of Zika virus or its complications.
However, it’s associated with a post-viral syndrome which has in some Zika survivors caused a temporary partial paralysis. This is known as Guillain-Barré syndrome. And also it’s been associated with the birth of microcephalic babies in some pregnant women that have been infected with Zika virus.
A microcephalic baby is a baby born with a congenital condition where has a small brain and those that survive face a lifetime of mental handicap. We still have a lot to learn about Zika virus transmission and how it produces the symptoms.
