Zika virus was first discovered in 1947 and is named after the zika forest in Uganda. In 1952, the first human cases of zika were detected and since then, out breaks of zika have been reported
in tropical Africa, Southeast Asia and the pacific islands. On February 1, 2016, the world health organization (who) declared zica virus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Zica virus disease (zica) is a disease caused by the zica virus. It is spread to people
primarily through the bite of an infected aides species mosquito. The most common symptoms of zica are fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis. The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting for several days to a week after being bitten by an infected mosquito. People usually
don’t get sick enough to go to the hospital and they very rarely die of zica. For this reason many people might not realize they have been infected. However, zica virus infection during pregnancy can cause a serious birth defect called ‘microcephaly’. As well as other severe fatal
brain defects. But it is a matter of relax that once a person has been infected he or she is likely to be protected from future infections. No vaccine exists to prevent zica virus. Avoiding mosquito bites it can be prevented. Avoiding mosquito bites mostly during daytime. So ringing
up curtain while sleeping is a must. Sexual transmission of zica can be prevented by using condoms. Above all public awareness is a must to prevent zica.
