Zika virus disease is caused by a virus transmitted primarily by Aedes mosquitoes. Its symptoms include mild fever, skin rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain.

The symptoms normally last for 2-7 days. Zika infections in pregnant women can cause microcephaly, a birth defect marked by small head size that can lead to severe developmental problems in babies.
