Description: Caption:
This 2016 image, depicted a pregnant woman, who was standing outdoors while reading the label on a bottle of insect repellent. Zika is spread primarily by the bite of mosquitoes (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). The risk of Zika is of great concern for pregnant women, who can pass Zika to their developing fetus, if infected during pregnancy. Here, the woman was wearing long sleeves, in order to cover exposed skin, thereby, preventing mosquito bites.
