    CDC scientists use the US Zika Pregnancy and Infant Registry to collect information to help families affected by Zika virus infection. Flowchart: A doctor decides that a pregnant woman should be tested for Zika virus. → A pregnant woman provides blood and urine samples to be tested for Zika virus. → The laboratory tests her samples for Zika virus and notifies her doctor who informs the woman of her results. → If she tests positive (meaning she has Zika virus), her doctor’s office securely sends her medical information to the health department. → The health department collects the baby’s medical information until its second birthday. → The health department sends the information securely to CDC’s US Zika Pregnancy & Infant Registry. → CDC scientists analyze the information to: • Report the number of women and babies affected by Zika virus in US states and territories. • Update clinical guidance for providing care to families affected by Zika virus. • Answer important questions about Zika virus.
