What is Zika?
Zika is a mosquito-transmitted virus that generally causes mild symptoms in adults including fever, rash, joint pains, and muscle aches. It has received significant attention in the media recently due to its association with a variety of birth defects when contracted by pregnant women, the most well known one being microcephaly. In addition to the potential for birth defects, zika has been found to be associated with the development of Guillan-Barre syndrome.
