Areas with Zika As At 3rd February, 2016

Where has Zika virus been found?
·       Prior to 2015, Zika virus outbreaks have occurred in areas of Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands.
·       In May 2015, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) issued an alert regarding the first confirmed Zika virus infections in Brazil.
·       Currently, outbreaks are occurring in many countries.
·       Zika virus will continue to spread and it will be difficult to determine how the virus will spread over time.

Zika in the United States and its territories:
·       No locally transmitted Zika cases have been reported in the continental United States, but cases have been reported in returning travelers.
·       Locally transmitted Zika virus has been reported in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and America Samoa.
·       With the recent outbreaks, the number of Zika cases among travelers visiting or returning to the United States will likely increase.
·       These imported cases could result in local spread of the virus in some areas of the United States.
