      What we know about Zika

      • Zika can be spread from a mother to her fetus during pregnancy.

      • Infection during pregnancies may be linked to birth defects in babies.

      • Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. These mosquitoes are aggressive daytime biters. They can also bite at night.

      • Zika is not currently found in the US. The mosquitoes that can carry Zika are found in some areas of the US.

      • Because the mosquitoes that spread Zika virus are found throughout the tropics, outbreaks will likely continue.

      • There is no vaccine or medicine for Zika.

      What we don’t know about Zika

      • If there’s a safe time during your pregnancy to travel to an area with Zika

      • If you do travel and are bitten: • How likely you are to get Zika; • How likely it is that your baby will have birth defects from the infection
