    Where has Zika virus been found?

    • In May 2015, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) issued an alert regarding the first confirmed Zika virus infections in Brazil.

    • Currently, outbreaks are occurring in many countries.

    • Zika virus will continue to spread and it will be difficult to determine how the virus will spread over time.

    Zika in the United States and its territories:

    • No locally transmitted Zika cases have been reported in the continental United States, but cases have been reported in returning travelers.

    • Locally transmitted Zika virus has been reported in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
