    The current Zika outbreak is unprecedented. Although it was first identified almost 70 years ago, Zika virus has only recently been identified as a cause of microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects. Never before in history has a bite from a mosquito been known to cause a devastating birth defect. Zika has spread to over 50 countries/ territories throughout the world, including the United States.

    CDC is leveraging its expertise and partnerships to protect the public, especially pregnant women and their fetuses, against Zika. We are acting on what we know today and discovering new ways to prevent, detect, and respond to this unprecedented threat to human health.
