A couple of years ago, the news bombarded you with stories about the Zika virus any time you turned on the tv or computer. The most alarming information was about the threat to pregnant women or those who planned on getting pregnant. We were warned that those who contract the virus through a bite or by having sex with a virus carrier may not show symptoms; however, there were reports of mild fever, rash, red eyes, and joint pain that often last a few days to a week. The virus itself hasn’t changed, but it’s not as prominent as it once was.
A Zika Virus Update
As of 2018, there was no record of the Zika virus in the continental United States. However, if you are traveling outside of the country, especially to a tropical place where mosquitoes thrive, it is still a possible threat.
If you’re planning to travel outside of the US and are concerned about contracting the virus, check with local health authorities or the CDC for more up-to-date information.
