This image depicts a pregnant woman holding a mobile phone that displays CDC’s Travelers’ Health website with updates on Zika in Costa Rica. As of 2016, Zika outbreaks are occurring in many countries and territories. The risk of Zika is of greatest concern for pregnant women, who can pass Zika to their developing fetus if infected during pregnancy. CDC recommends that pregnant women not travel to areas with Zika.
Additional Information:
“Zika is spread primarily by the bite of Aedes species mosquitoes (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). Zika virus can also be spread through sex.”
