ZikaVirus Disease

About:  It is spread to people primarily through mosquitos which lay eggs in and near standing water in things like buckets, animal dishes, and flower pots. They are aggressive daytime biters and can also bite at night. 

Symptoms:  Most common are fever, rash, joint pain , red eyes. The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting for several days to a week.

Treatment:  Get plenty of rest. Drink fluids. Take medicine such as acetaminophen (Tylenol�) or paracetamol to reduce fever and pain.

For Pregnant Women: Zika virus can be spread to her fetus and has been linked to a serious birth defect of the brain called microcephaly in babies of mothers who had Zika virus while pregnant. CDC recommends special precautions for pregnant women. Women who are pregnant should not travel to areas with Zika.

If you have Zika, prevent mosquito bites for the first week of your illness.

More detailed information can be found on CDC’s Zikavirus web page for healthcare
