There is an outbreak of Zika fever, a mosquito-borne viral disease, in Central and South America.
Symptoms are often mild and include fever, rash, headaches, joint and muscle pains, lack of energy and eye soreness or conjunctivitis. Importantly the CDC has issued a warning for pregnant women due to the potential for the virus to cause damage to the nervous system and brain of developing foetus.
Pregnant women (in any trimester) or women trying to become pregnant should consider postponing travel to any area where Zika virus is present. Or if you must travel, talk to your doctor first and strictly followsteps to prevent mosquito bites during your trip.
There is no specific antiviral treatment for Zika virus or vaccine against Zika. Therefore, anyone travelling to the infected areas are advised to prevent mosquito bites by covering your skin, using treated clothing and applying insect repellents. Please refer to the CDC website for more advice on these precautions and a list of infected counties.
