    Today’s Zika outbreak is unprecedented. Although it was first identified almost 70 years ago, Zika virus has only now been identified as a cause of microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects. Never before in history has there been a situation where a bite from a mosquito could result in a devastating malformation. It has spread to over 50 countries/territories throughout the world, including the United States.

    CDC’s knowledge of Zika is evolving daily; we are acting based on what we know now, while at the same time, discovering more so we can continue to improve our ability to prevent, detect, and respond to Zika.
