Zika Virus


The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed protection against mosquito bites as the key to prevention against the Zika virus infection.

  • Outbreaks of Zika virus disease have been recorded in Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific.
  • The Aedes mosquitoes are carriers of Zika virus, Dengue fever, Chikungunya and Yellow fever.
  • People with Zika virus disease can have symptoms including mild fever, skin rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, malaise or headache.
  • There is scientific consensus that Zika virus is a cause of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome, with Brazil reporting this association in 2015.
  • There is currently no vaccine for Zika virus.


Aedes mosquitoes usually bite during the day, peaking during early morning and late afternoon/evening, as a result the prevention advice is to:

  • Wear clothes treated with insect protection
  • Use mosquito nets treated with insect protection
  • Use insect repellents
