The Zika virus spreads through vector transmission. Zika infected individuals show no signs and symptoms of infection. In some cases, the following signs and symptoms:
general feeling of discomfort
rash and muscle pain
The incubation period, what is the time of exposure to onset of symptoms, is still unknown, but is likely to be a few days to a week.
The adverse effect of Zika virus is microcephaly, a condition characterized by the fatal congenital condition that is common among infants. This occurs when a pregnant woman is exposed to Zika virus. There have been new cases of the UK to Brazil virus, exposing many newborns with abnormalities congenical.
On the basis of investigations carried out so far, the virus does not spread from person to person like a cold, but through vector transmission-one bites an infected person and then another person who then contracted the mosquito virus. An effective measure to prevent infection is to avoid mosquito bites altogether in places where there have been cases of Zika virus.
To date, there is no vaccine to prevent or known drug to treat Zika virus infection. An effective measure to prevent infection is to avoid mosquito bites altogether in places where there have been cases of Zika virus.
